Ten Ways to Cultivate a Love of Reading in Students

Ten Ways to Cultivate a Love of Reading in Students | Literacy 4 adolescents | Scoop.it

"As a teacher, I was obsessed with cultivating a love of reading in my students. I love to read, loved it as a kid too. I'm equally compelled to ensure that my own child loves reading -- and he does. I well aware that I'm on a mission -- but I also know it's a worthy one!

Here are ten suggestions for how any teacher, teaching any subject can participate in this mission, and how parents and administrators can help"

Reading for pleasure increases cognitive progress


 

 

 Reading for pleasure increases cognitive progress

A new working paper from the Centre for Longitudinal Studies at the Institute of Education in London sets out to examine socioeconomic inequalities in cognitive test scores at age 16. In particular, the authors were interested in whether reading for pleasure was linked to cognitive progress.  

The study found that children who read for pleasure at the ages of 10 and 16 made more progress in math, vocabulary, and spelling between the ages of 10 and 16 than those who rarely read, even after controlling for parental social background and parents' own reading behavior. The largest gains were for vocabulary. From a policy perspective, the authors say this strongly supports the need to support and encourage children's reading in their leisure time.

The research also showed that parents' education was far more important for children's performance in cognitive tests than parents' economic resources. The home reading culture, including reading to the child, reading books and newspapers, and having problems with reading, was also significantly linked to children's test scores. This had a relatively strong role in mediating the influence of parents' education, and a smaller role in mediating parents' material resources. 

The study used data on a sample of around 6,000 young people being followed as part of the 1970 British Cohort Study and the scores from math, vocabulary, and spelling tests taken when they were aged 16.

The photo drew me into this post! This article resonates with me. I have many times wondered about the effects of extrinsic motivators. Time and time again, I see the benefits short-lived as this article shares. What are your thoughts about motivation and purpose? For example, I am motivated to read this paper because I want to know more about how to motivate my child to read? (I have a purpose for reading).
Lori Rakes's comment, October 30, 2012 7:12 PM
Yes, I do believe that purpose is a motivator. If I want to learn how to make oragami, I will read the book to learn. If students have a purpose, a meaningful purpose (not just for testing purposes), they will be more motivated to learn or read.
