‘Reading for pleasure usually decreases when students reach junior high school and high school, so older students Mist become “hooked on books” before they leave elementary school’. Listening to read and enjoy books begin in the home listening to stories read by a loving parent’.
Huck, Hepler and Hickman, 19872691. Unlike the teacher of the sciences, the teacher of Literature is very often faced with the problem of lack of adequate motivating reasons, and hence, a ready interest to be exploited. Even as early as the lower forms of the secondary schools, our pupils, are already directing serious attention away from Literature’.
