Sabrimãng cầu Justison’s philosophy of teaching literature to lớn teens and tweens:

Some kids are natural bookworms; some are not. There is no right or wrong answer lớn the question, “Do you LOVE lớn read??” But homeschoolers pretty much universally agree that teens and tweens need lớn read books. Why is it important for our kids to read books – good books, và sometimes even hard books! – & what are ways we can help them engage in the process, gaining rich learning from it…even if they are not naturally bookworms?

Here’s a thought: A book is nothing unread.

Something amazing happens when a reader opens an author’s book. It’s not simply that the author’s words are released from captivity. Instead, much more than that happens.

The author’s words are released và brought into lớn an encounter with the reader. The ideas, experiences, settings, characters và relationships that poured out of the author’s mind & onkhổng lồ the page meet up with all that has been a part of the reader’s life khổng lồ that point. Anything might happen in such a meeting!

How can we encourage our kids to read classic literature, help them actually get something worthwhile out of it, but also be honest enough khổng lồ validate any frustrations they feel, and help them move sầu beyond that frustration lớn something like satisfaction with the experience?

As our kids grow from early readers lớn late elementary school reading assignments, we focus a lot of attention on READING COMPREHENSION, right? Vocabulary must be mastered. Simple devices lượt thích symbolism or personification must be introduced. We have them answer questions khổng lồ make sure they are following the plot. We have them draw pictures when they are young and write papers when they are older describing characters and their relationships with one another…all so that they will be able to lớn understand what they are reading. And these are all good things – don’t get me wrong!

Comprehending what you read is absolutely vital to success as a student, and even lớn success in life as an adult. But there is a lot more to reading than comprehension. In fact, comprehension is only the FIRST cấp độ of a reader’s grasp of a book.

Reading for Interpretation is another layer, a deeper màn chơi of interaction with a book. When we read for interpretation, we are trying lớn underst& the book IN LIGHT OF a particular idea. How different might it be to read Harper Lee’s classic story of the challenge to overcome prejudice in the Great Depression era American south if you were not encouraged to keep the idea of “prejudice và its damage to lớn society” in mind as you read? Sometimes all it takes is a simple mention of an idea on which khổng lồ focus; teens don’t need to find every single instance of prejudice causing damage, but they may benefit from some gentle direction to keep their eyes open và pay attention when they vì chưng encounter it.

Inferential Reading adds another experience và set of skills. When we read for inference, we gain knowledge from the book & then reach a conclusion based on that knowledge. We try to predict what will come next, thinking about cause và effect. We ponder a character’s motives that are not clearly spelled out for us. The conclusion one person reaches may be vastly different from the conclusion reached by another reader.

It needs lớn be okay for a young person khổng lồ learn something different from the book than what I learned, as long as he or she can take a reasonable stab at sharing with me HOW that conclusion was reached. Teens should get full credit for using their brains as they read, even if they reach an unusual conclusion!

Reading for Evaluation is yet another type of reading. When we evaluate a book, we determine its worth. This is a highly subjective sầu process, và it can be empowering for students who are NOT natural bookworms when we teach them to evaluate a book và encourage them lớn articulate their conclusions.

The worth of book can be defined in countless ways. Piông xã one, and ask your student lớn evaluate it in light of a particular question. Questions lượt thích, “Even if you didn’t like this book, was it filled with vivid descriptions of a time và place you didn’t know much about before?” or “You may not have sầu liked it, but did it give sầu you a new understanding of the roots of Communism in the Soviet Union?” For extra layers of learning, you can give students a couple of different scales & ask them evaluate the book based on the two or three different sets of parameters. Often kids who thought a book was “stupid” will have a new way of thinking open up to them when they are asked lớn evaluate a book.

The literature guides I’ve sầu written for 7Sisters attempt khổng lồ lead tweens and teens inlớn new types of reading experiences beyond simple comprehension, building skills for interpretation, inference and evaluation. In my experience with my own kids (some of whom were NOT bookworms!) và with hundreds of teens in our local homeschool community, these guides usher even reluctant readers inlớn new levels of engagement with really good books.
