No, no, no!
Sometimes I worry. I’m turning into my Dad (which is no bad thing, as long as I don’t shrink to his height). My instant reaction, upon reading this article advocating allowing boys to ditch novels and books in place of trading cards and chat rooms, was NO!!!!
Study says boys do read, they just don’t read books
“There has been extensive debate over how to improve boys’ reading and writing levels, however boys may, in fact, be further ahead than girls because of their extensive use of the Internet and computer games, according to the study.”
Yeah, further ahead in how NOT to spell. Further ahead in how not to use grammar. Further ahead in not being able to string a paragraph together. Sorry but I wholeheartedly disagree. I work with people, intelligent people, who can’t spell properly. It’s almost embarassing at times.
