Why It Matters
• The American Library Association says “students who read independently become better readers, score higher on achievement tests in all subject areas, and have greater content knowledge than those who do not.”
• Current research indicates that taking notes by hand on paper aids memory and recollection.
• According to another recent study, “people who regularly read and write have a markedly slower decline in memory than people who don’t.”
