This 17-slide presentation addresses the many reasons why your students should be life-long readers, presenting data on:
- vocabulary acquisition rates
- TV and the average individual
- education, unemployment, and salary
- life expectancy and education
- and more!
I also have an assignment that I do with this presentation, which has students examine the slides independently, recording inferences and conclusions drawn from the data. I'm not sure how to include a separate file here, but if you are interested after downloading the presentation, please just send me a message and I will be happy to email you the file free of charge :).
