Instilling a Lifelong Love of Reading
Duncan, Sarah Parks
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v46 n2 p90-93 Win 2010
Each year, teachers are overwhelmed with too much to cover and an endless list of things to accomplish between the first bell and the final report card. In addition to helping students master mandated curriculum and prep for standardized tests, there seems to be a never-ending stream of surprise fire drills and last-minute assemblies that rob instruction time. But between all the business, and bustle of the school year, teachers should not forget to help students cultivate one of the most important habits they can possess: the practice of regular reading. So how can teachers help their students become readers? This article offers suggestions that can go a long way in motivating one's students to view reading as an enjoyable pastime instead of school-based task.
