Nothing is worse for an avid reader and a lover of books than having a child who doesn’t like to read. Reading to a child early in life will help them foster a love of reading and prepare them to read themselves, but sometimes not even that can be enough to foster a love of the written word. Reading parents know that aversion to reading will haunt their child for the rest of his life, making school harder making the rest of his or her life harder.
But, as any parent knows, you cannot just say to a 10-year-old who hates reading, “You’re going to read and you’re going to like it.” First, you have to understand why reading is so difficult for your student.
In the school systems today, reading is being taught in an inefficient manner. “Average” readers today read anywhere from 100 words per minute (usually for memorization purposes) to 700 words per minute (“skimming”, looking only for specific key words). As the words per minute go up, reading comprehension goes down, and this is borne out in standardized test scores. With the pressure on slower readers of having to finish the reading section and the comprehension questions within a set period of time, most end up turning to “skimming” looking only at key words in the question and then trying to find them in the reading section. This “cheater” system is only reinforced when the test comes back with a good grade (since they were only looking for specific words).
What would you, as a mother, pay to not only teach your child a better, faster, and easier way of reading but also one that increases their reading comprehension up to over 80%?
