Reading books quora

Alternatively, you could randomly cold-call on students who have struggled historically with reading and make them read two pages aloud. The most surefire way to destroy a love of learning in students is to make it learning for the sake of itself, and not with practical application.
Mock them openly if they stumble, or patronizingly correct their mistakes and applaud them if they do improve in a most passive-aggressive display of carelessness at their actual reading progress. Assign an analysis paragraph following a standardized model with a good acronym like TEALs or TIQuAC. Give the students each a study guide that they have to complete chapter by chapter with completely irrelevant questions to the overarching plot. Give the students a comprehensive, 100-question, multiple-choice Scantron (or otherwise computer-graded) test. They're the ones who use good strategies poorly, without ever explaining what they are doing or why to the students.
Best if you simply read to them in the most monotone, robotic, emotionless voice you can muster.


Best results if done on Shakespeare with no prior student experience in reading Early Modern English. Assign an analysis paper due the day of the test, and significantly limit the topics they may choose from to three insignificant quotes.
Three months later, give a comprehensive, closed-book, two-hour, multiple-choice semester final exam that includes mostly questions stolen from the multiple-choice unit exam earlier in the semester. They make the final product or the test the main goal of education, not the process of learning and applying knowledge. Do not betray the slightest hint that you have interest in the book or passion for the topic. Make sure to include detailed minutiae such as the color of the pants worn by the protagonist (and make sure to use words like protagonist, and quiz those, too).
Do not discuss why it's meaningful, but dock them significantly if they can't express why it is. In fact, pretend you have an utter loathing for it, and read it as dryly as a technical manual.


Do not explain under any circumstances why these are helpful; simply give them to the students with no formal training.
Best if clearly visible that this exam was copied from a teacher's edition of the textbook and purchased with a canned curriculum. Include at least a half-dozen questions that were never once even brought up in the original reading of the novel.
They may be competent in their subject knowledge and their exacting pedagogy may be word-for-word from an educational psychology textbook, but they are not engaging or interesting to study with, nor will their students ever retain the information or learn to do anything with it.
Single out one student who overachieved and reward that student while pointedly ignoring all others.
Demand the part of speech, alternative definitions, and etymology for vocabulary, and that all study guide responses be in the form of specific cited quotes from the text, which will be docked if not in perfect MLA citation format.
