Questions Often Asked about Promoting Lifetime Literacy Efforts.
Sanacore, Joseph
Fostering the lifelong habit of reading is a vitally important goal that educators should embrace. When teaching and learning are connected to lifetime literacy efforts, students are in a better position to learn effectively and to develop the love of learning. Many teachers and administrators have demonstrated a keen interest in helping their students become not only proficient readers but also lifetime learners. This paper uses a question-and-answer dialogue to generate a rationale for supporting the lifetime reading habit in school. The paper discusses why lifetime literacy efforts are important; what is needed to encourage students to develop a love of reading; how teachers can motivate children to read for pleasure; how teachers can provide a balanced program that considers both lifetime literacy and skills instruction; how teachers can foster lifetime literacy in learners who are struggling with literacy; and what some of the obstacles are for educators working toward the goal of supporting lifetime literacy efforts.
