Video: “Reading books could help lengthen your life”


Earlier this week, I shared a New York Times story detailing the results of a new study on reading books (see Statistic Of The Day: Reading Helps You Live Longer).

Here’s a news segment on the same study, which could come in handy in a classroom lesson on the advantages of reading. If, for some reason, the YouTube video is blocked by your school district filter, you can view it directly on Newsy’s site (which also happens to have a short article on that study that’s more accessible than the Times’ piece).

I’m adding it to The Best Posts On Books: Why They’re Important & How To Help Students Select, Read, Write & Discuss Them.
