I’m stuck on a English question and need an explanation.
We all know that reading gives us pleasure. It can be fun entertainment.
But over the last few years there have been numerous media reports
about the research being conducted on the other impacts reading has on
our lives. Recent studies from universities in Europe (e.g., University
of Edinburgh, University of Manchester) and North America ( e.g.,
Harvard, Yale, University of Toronto) have found scientific evidence
that reading benefits our mental, physical, and social health.
Here is a list of the 12 advantages of why reading is good for us:
increases knowledge, improves memory, stabilizes mood,
sharpens concentration, promotes empathy, refines critical-thinking capacity,
builds vocabulary, enhances creativity, refines writing skills,
reduces loneliness/depression, develops our tolerance for ambiguity/uncertainty,
helps us grow into more interesting and cultured humans.
Read as much as you possibly can. Nothing will help you as much as reading. J. K. Rowling
Here is your task:
Choose 1 reading from the course material (poem, short fiction, novel, essay, or play). Review the course outline if you need help remembering what we studied. Apply that above criteria to the example of your choice that we studied and explain how and why that particular reading benefited you. In other words, what did it mean to you? What did you learn about yourself, others, and the world? Be reflective, convincing, and analytical in your response. Good luck. Stay safe and healthy.
