Two words, but those words can can cause an uprising of stress and annoyance in a school student, or an uprising of excitement and happiness in a school student.
Who knew two words could cause such waves of emotions?
Anyways, this subject popped into my head as I was thinking about it, because recently my dad showed me an email that explained the summer reading for my new school.
So far, I don’t like the names of the books, but I’m sure when I read them my opinion will change, hopefully for the good.
But it got me thinking, is summer reading a waste of time or is it useful?
From what I heard- from one of my good teachers- they had told me that schools only make the students attending said school to do summer reading to make the school look better.
And even though that may be true, I still stand by my belief that summer reading now has become more important now, than it was in the future.
Kids nowadays are dropping away from books and are moving towards the alternative- technology.
Why read books when you have the accessibility to go watch the book?
Summer reading now has become the only way students in school who are not interested in books are able to read a book. Without this influence, I’m positive that these people would completely forget the library and turn to the technological options.
In fact, that’s sadly where things are slowly turning. I can actually count on one hand of how many friends that I know who actually enjoy reading books. That’s quite upsetting that this is the reality.
Book were our future, they helped us write, they helped us form this world. Books are so important to the older generation, and that shouldn’t be taken away from the children who will grow up in the future years. Those children deserve everything that we have in our time, it’s not fair to them to take it away. And it’s even worse to just take it away because we don’t think that it’s useful anymore.
Summer reading may just be schoolwork, but it’s much more than that. It’s helping revive the world that has managed to detach itself from books. It’s giving kids the chance to read a book- and the books are usually just classics, which gives them a chance to see the original books- and write a paper about it, on their thoughts on it.
BOOKS ARE NEEDED. DO NOT EVER THROW AWAY THOSE PRECIOUS PIECES OF PAPER BINDED TOGETHER WITH WORDS WRITTEN ON THEM. I mean, they’re already becoming our future with these blogs, how we write on them and people read them.
Do me the favor and always keep reading.
Until next time…
