How To Improve Your Reading Culture Even If You’re Low On Time and Funds

 


Students need to read to improve their brain power, build empathy, and enrich their lives, but how do we accomplish that while fighting a tide of negativity, a limited budget, and a full curriculum? Here are a few small practices that can make a tremendous impact.

Walk the Walk

Students should see that the adults in their lives value reading. Modeling will help them to view reading not as a mere task to complete, but as part of a healthy lifestyle beyond school. You can  include the books you are reading in your e-mail signature. Similarly, you can post pictures of the books you are currently reading on your community platform at https://naijasky.com/naijatowns. These are simple ways you can show others the importance of reading and also opens up a new channel of communication. People who have read the posted books can discuss them with you, while other people may be intrigued by these exchanges or by the book covers, and then pick up the book to read.

A third way of presenting ourselves as readers to other and promote reading culture is through the creation of community book clubs. While more time-consuming than the ideas listed above, they create rich communities of readers. Book clubs can meet regularly and don’t require a budget. You share recommendations, read short stories and poems, and discuss important topics such as censorship.

Provide Options

Educators know that students appreciate choice. While we may not always be able to offer choice in terms of the curriculum, we can always provide people with options for personal reading. One way of matching people with high-interest texts is presenting 5-minute book talks. Talking just a few minutes to showcase a book students can borrow—by reading the jacket, sharing an intriguing passage to highlight writing style, and showing the cover and thickness of the book—will help match students with books they may be genuinely interested in. This can also be a helpful method of providing students with books that meet their reading levels. Book talks spark interest in older titles as well as new.

Making lists of recommendations by genre also increases ownership over book selection. Create lists that include the titles of popular books, a brief synopsis for each, their call numbers, and images of book covers. Instead of blindly matching a student with the first science fiction book that comes to mind, for example, these lists provide students with many options within their preferred genre(s). This practice has been so successful in many libraries, Expand the traditional genre lists to include books about animals, books that have been challenged or banned throughout history at various libraries, and more.

Present Reading as a Privilege

The furniture of a book nook does not need to be fancy or expensive. You can accept donations or pick up cheap pillows and chairs. Low on time for independent reading in the classroom? Allow students to read if they have completed their work early or as you conference with other groups.

Also arrange interview sessions with authors. The authors often talk about their all-time favorite books or the books that inspired them as children, which reinforces the importance of reading to students and also presents writing as a real career possibility. Students look forward to these sessions and feel honored to engage with famous writers.
