All Students Can Benefit From Reading

If you were to mention the word 'book' to a student, their immediate association is likely to be their school textbooks. While there is no denying the power of these books, there are many benefits of reading non-school books. The Tutoring Center, Miramar FL has some information on the subject.

Vocabulary

An expansive vocabulary is one of the most beneficial tools a student can have throughout their academic path. Students who can express themselves well can provide more robust answers on assessments and exams along with articulating their thoughts during presentations or debates. Fantasy, science-fiction, horror, mystery, romance, writing about these subjects requires very different words and nuances than standard textbook vocabulary allows. It is these words which can help students better present their thoughts.

Construction

With a strong vocabulary under their belt, sentence structure is the next benefit students can gain from personal reading. Textbooks are going to be written academically and purposefully. They are designed to present the reader with accurate and understandable information. Novels and stories, on the other hand, are designed to spark imagination and take the reader on a journey. Combined, skills learned from both reading styles allow students to adapt their writing styles to different situations, such as essays, college applications, and also job applications.

Tutoring and Homework Help

These are two very strong benefits which all students can gain from reading a mixture of academic and personal interest books. If your student is studying for a test or needs help completing their homework, tutoring can help.
