Should we read more books individually and in school?

There are people who love to read and people who don’t, but should teachers assign more books throughout the year? Many positive effects can come from reading including relieving stress, improving memory, and strengthening the brain.

Stress is something that everyone deals with. Whether you’re late turning in an assignment or forgot to turn something in, it still affects you and your motivation greatly. By reading, your brain has time to relax and focus on the characters and their life rather than worrying about yours. This benefits you by giving you time to get away from any problems you’ve been experiencing.

Reading can also improve your memory. When you read, you use multiple brain functions at the same time, such as phonemic awareness, your visual and auditory processes, comprehension, and fluency. Reading allows you to maintain concentration on what is happening in front of you. Reading more will engage those parts of the brain and strengthen your memory.

Overall, reading can help strengthen the brain in certain areas that deal with comprehension and understanding, which can be helpful in classes. Reading more in school and outside of school will help you in the long run.
