Reading: It's Not Always Fun-damental

Share it Please
Parents and teachers work hard to instill a love of reading in young people. In fact, most consider that the love of reading is absolutely essential to a happy, successful, and fulfilling life. They are on an endless pursuit to find ways to cultivate readers or ignite a love of reading.  But what about individuals who prefer not to get their information that way?

There is little tolerance for those who choose not to read. Some are labeled as "struggling" or “reluctant” by well-meaning adults who try to come up with ways to provide help and support to fix the problem. Others may be what some define as aliterate: able to read but uninterested in doing so. There are also young people that are just not interested in reading “yet” or they may not be developmentally ready. In fact there is research and experts such as Alfie Kohn who suggest that all this coercion to try to get young people to read may be backfiring and contributing to both our illiteracy problem as well as creating non-readers.
