Why Read

why read
I am sometimes asked about the importance of students reading regularly. I would always give my reasons why I felt students should spend time reading after the school day was over. In fact, sometimes that was the only homework I gave because I didn't have enough time during the school day for them to "read to self". I've seen several versions of the info-graphic I've posted here before, but I feel that it does a very good job of "showing" the importance of regularly reading outside the school day.
