Ask me anything about Reading With Eyes Shut and Reluctant Readers
Do you remember a time when you couldn’t read? You were five years old--or maybe four-- and your eyes gazed without comprehension at a page of sticks and circles?
What about the learning-to-read phase when you struggled to sound out words, trying to hear them aloud or in your head; trying to make sense of each word and remember them long enough to assemble meaning from a sentence or paragraph.
Readers may be “reluctant” for a variety of reasons. Reading With Eyes Shut focuses on one of those; the idea that some readers spend so much mental effort focusing on decoding words that they don’t experience the intrinsic joy of visualizing characters, places, and events. Reluctant readers are missing out on the fantastic worlds that authors help us to create in our minds.
