Reading and re-reading may not be effective learning methods in an exam retrieval point of view. But are we ignoring the Giant? WHAT READING DOES FOR THE MIND BY ANNE E.CUNNINGHAM AND KEITH STANOVICHhttps://t.co/MGoPNCZ2FS pic.twitter.com/YbjDPFPH3B— Kiran Johny (@johnywrites) August 30, 2019
Reading and re-reading are less effective learning methods compared to other powerful learning methods as proven by many studies.
But this can send the wrong connotation that reading is overall a bad idea for learning.
This kind of conceptual mis-attribution could result in lack of emphasis on reading either by omission( omitting reading as an academic practice or instruction Eg. SSR ) or commission( focusing on memorizing or problem solving without cultivating the fundamental language skills through reading).
