Social Reading: Promoting Reading in the Millennial Learner
Preddy, Leslie
School Library Media Activities Monthly, v25 n5 p22-25 Jan 2009
Students' minds today are attracted to entertainment and all things social. To engage the reading attitudes of this generation, educators need to adapt some old tricks and add new tricks to their bag to meet these Digital Natives where they live--the world of social interaction and social technology. This article discusses the three R's necessary to impact the next generation--reading, relationships, role models--and provides examples of how educators can promote social reading.
