Dear Reader. I married him. Ha kidding – English teacher joke (Jane Eyre). Anyway – dear readers, I would like to ask you a favor. I will be teaching some less than enthusiastic readers this year, and I was hoping to give them a picture of what adult readers look like. Most of my students think that teachers were born good readers, always like to read, were always good at reading, and read high level literature for fun all day long. Meanwhile, they think, normal people don’t. So I’m hoping to utilize this week’s post and poll to test out my hypothesis (that that’s just not the case). If you could take a moment and just answer a couple of questions below about your reading habits, your earlier reading experiences, and your current reading habits, that would be great. I will be sharing this information, anonymously, with my students as evidence (hopefully) that reading isn’t just for English teachers and that their preference for it might change over time.
Thanks for your time!
