A LEADER’S GUIDE

reading for pleasure what the research says
Reading for Pleasure—what the research says
  • The percentage of 17-year-olds who read nothing at all for pleasure has doubled over a 20 year period.
  • Families are spending less money on books than at any other time in the last two decades.
  • A noticeable gap exists in reading levels between males and females.
slide3
Reading comprehension skills are declining.
  • Reading for pleasure correlates strongly with academic achievement.
  • Children and teenagers who read for pleasure on a daily or weekly basis score better on reading tests than infrequent readers.
slide4
Research from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

(OECD, 2002) showed that

reading enjoyment is more important for children’s

educational success than their family’s socio-economic status.

      • You make them up as you read

      • Students draw questions to discuss
