News: Dan Willingham on encouraging children to read

What can parents do to help children chose reading as an activity?

My pal and colleague, Dan Willingham, suggested strategies for promoting children’s reading activity during the summer. His subtitle tells the story: “Strong reading skills predict greater success in school and, ultimately, in the workplace. So, we want children to choose reading, but if they never do, what are our options?”

You can review his suggested options in his article, “Nudging Kids Toward Reading this Summer.”
