The Most Important Lesson Schools Can Teach Kids About Reading: It's Fun - Jeffrey Wilh... - 42 views

  • pleasure is not incidental to reading—it’s essential
  • experience the pleasure of entering a story world
  • The pleasure of play is what readers experience when they become lost in a book
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • not privilege intellectual pleasures, the characteristic province of school

  • teachers of reading and literature need to make pleasure more central to our practice. 
  • Our data also convinced us of the importance of choice

The more you rely on coercion and extrinsic inducements, as a matter of fact, the less interest students are likely to have in whatever they were induced to do."
