Reading and text comprehension

  • Francesco Milito Pensa MultiMedia Editore

Abstract

Media has the responsibility to convey people’s habits towards forms of homologation,
even managing to affect the period of attention, on language skills, lexical and written
expression. Is the debate of exploring issues related to reading still useful? Words appear
threatened in its written form, it risks losing the essence that characterizes it, affecting
itself negatively especially the quality of the message that is being transmitted, even
orally. The social structures characterized by the rapid cultural evolution require that
young people interpret texts in order to find useful information to the structuring of
thought and are able to contribute to the development of one’s own intellectual capacity.
The school’s task is to pursue the goal of development of critical mentalities, to favor
student’s choices related to the information that may be considered or refused. The
teacher’s task is to identify contents, time and useful methods.
