Reading & Writing ✍
Why Reading and Writing is Important
Reading and writing are linked together; reading is what makes someones writing superior. When you read a novel, you pick out a handful of words you don't know. With the power of the internet, there is easy access to the definition. Also, using context clues and what you know already can piece together a words meaning. Therefore, reading helps with expanding on vocabulary and helps spice up an essay. There are two types of writing systems: limited and full. Limited writing systems help individuals memorize anything simple, like an account. Limited systems of writing can also contain imagery. "Also called subwritting, limited systems of writing include picture writing (or pictography), ideograpghy, and the use of marked or unmarked objects as mnemonic devices" (Writing). Full systems of writing includes the ability to convey any concept in the language. "A full writing system is capable of expressing any concept that can be formulated in language" (Writing). Writing can make a person sound more credible in their paper and helps our imagination expand.
The more knowledge you pick up on writing, the more you will be able to create. This quote symbolizes the stages of life in a way. When you are a baby, you begin to learn a variety of different words, as to being an adult where you could write a novel based on the knowledge you acquire.
Someone who chooses not to read is lacking the same knowledge as someone who cannot read. If you have the ability to read, but won't, then you aren't learning anything.
The more words you read, the more words you can add to your vocabulary. The more you learn, the more you can do. For example, in the quote, by Dr. Seuss, says, "The more that you learn the more places you'll go". If you plan on traveling, you need to do additional research and learn about where it is you are traveling to. Without the knowledge on the place, you will not know where to go or what to do.
