How we read now : strategic choices for print, screen, and audio / Naomi S. Baron.

Baron, Naomi S., (author.).


"[This book] is a ringside seat to the impact of reading medium on learning. Teachers, administrators, librarians, and policymakers need to make decisions about classroom materials. The book begins by sizing up the state of reading . . . , revealing how little reading students have been doing. The heart of the book connects research insights to practical applications. [The author] draws on work from international researchers, along with results from her collaborative studies of student reading practices ranging from middle school through college. The result is an impartial view of the evidence, including where the jury is still out. The book closes with two challenges. The first is that students increasingly complain print is boring. And second, for all the educational buzz about teaching critical thinking, digital reading is inherently ill-suited for cultivating these habits of mind. Since screens and audio are now entrenched--and valuable--platforms for reading, we need to rethink how to help learners use them wisely" Provided by publisher.
