EDUCATION WEEK QUESTION: Is the Teaching of Reading Skills Dying in our Schools?
Asks Joe Kingsley Eyiah, OCT, Brookview M. S., Toronto-Canada
Did you know that READING can keep your mind active and engaged well into old age? Reading is considered one of the best habits that one can inculcate in him/her. It leads one to knowledge!
The old Good Book says that ‘for lack of knowledge my people perish’. Yes, knowledge is power. Though knowledge comes to us in many forms, it best comes in the pages of a book. However, we won’t know until we read what is written in the pages. Therefore reading is the key to knowledge. It is said that the one who reads is a leader!
As a parent and a teacher by profession I can’t overemphasize the importance of reading to the teaching and learning process.
