My ideas for increasing reading in high school students

As someone who didn't read during high school and refused to take classes I could easily pass due to to much reading/Writing this seems like the perfect list for me.

    1. Non Fiction > Fiction

    If I want fiction I can watch a TV show/Movie. I've read over 70 books in the last few years, none of which are fiction. I read because I want to improve my life. Having a library full of self help, Psychology, Science ect. and a brief description on how these could improve your life will increase reading a lot.

    Why do you read? Was that a focus in high school?

    2. Comics/Manga count

    I read a lot of comics/manga, but was looked down upon due to them not being books, eventually I stopped. But the amount I read was well over what a lot of 'book readers' read. If reading is what matters, why do pictures lessen the experience?

    The town was ghastly, grey sky, silence apart from the occasional scream as someone was stabbed by one of the many thugs hiding in the shadows of the even shadier buildings that cast them.

    or you could have a picture that shows all of that and saves you time on reading. How much shorter would fiction books be with pictures? Would that make them worse? I don't think so.

    3. Purpose

    Similar to 1. If you know why you're reading and how it benefits your life your far more likely to do it. 'You need to read in order to pass your exam' is a useless reason. What are better reasons?

    1. You'll learn better ways to think

    2. You'll learn what actions lead to the life you want

    3. You'll expand your vocabulary and articulate your thoughts more clearly. Calming your mind.

    4. You'll shorten the gap between you and the elites of the world

    4. Review Focused

    What if the focus of reading was changed into how to write a great review? After you read you can upload your review to an online blog and build an online following from them. Promoting good work as a way to build an audience over stupid videos/Trendy photos will lead to a greater generation.

    5. Read in order to help with a project

    Give students a product to work on for the year and make reading a component of reaching that goal. They'll need to read to learn the skills/knowledge needed to complete the task. They could be reading in order to gain insights into writing their own book, making a short film, engineering something.Reading helps with everything and this will prove that to them.
