Chair: Read to improve reading

Chair: Read to improve reading | Chrildren reading | Scoop.it

“Practice makes perfect” is the mantra Professor Mike Burton, chair of English, reading and education, uses to advise students trying to improve their reading skills.

If students want to improve reading skills, they have to read, he said.

“There’s a proverb in the Bible that says, ‘The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom,’” Burton said, adding a student should not start reading a textbook or Shakespeare unless it’s their preference.

“Read what interests you. Read something that makes the marks on the page turn into ideas,” Burton said. “It amazes me people who can look at a music score and hear the music play. Reading is very much the same way, but it’s still a process, and it can still be a chore.”
