The Role of the Reading Teacher in Secondary Schools
A. 0. Aboderin
It is not an overstatement to claim that no man can acquire all the knowledge, experience, and information he needs to keep abreast of the modern world by merely listening to what people say. Even if this is possible, it is certain that some of the information gathered by merely listening will be lost with time. A good way of storing up information and of preserving knowledge and experience, therefore, is by writing down such information somewhere for future reference through reading (see Aboderin & Orisawayi, 1980: 1).
