Reading for Pleasure and Creativity among College Students
Kelly, Kathryn E.; Kneipp, Lee B.
College Student Journal, v43 n4 p1137-1144 Dec 2009
This study explored the relationship between reading for pleasure and creativity. University students (N = 225) completed measures of reading for pleasure and creativity (SCAB). The results indicated that reading for pleasure was significantly, positively correlated to creativity. Implications for the classroom are explored, including possible positive effects of assigning relevant fictional material to increase understanding of academic material. Further suggestions for future research are also discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
