Just admit it. Some books you have to read in school are just plain boring. You don't know why your teacher assigned it to you, and you feel like it is just a waste of time. But it isn't.
Just admit it. Some books you have to read in school are just plain boring. You don't know why your teacher assigned it to you, and you feel like it is just a waste of time. But it isn't. Teachers give you books in class for a reason, most likely because you will get something out of it, like learning an important lesson, or finding out about a significant time in history. But if you have been reading it for a while and you are still bored out of your mind, here are 5 tips for making the book more bearable.
1. Try to make connections from the book to your life. If you are like the main character, ask yourself why you are alike. Are you brave? Are you shy?
2. Look up any words you don't understand. I know it sounds silly, but if some words you think you know don't make sense, there might be multiple definitions.
3. Ask your teacher what the main theme of the book is, and make sure you understand that there is often a literal and a figurative meaning. In other words, a story can have a "real" meaning, which is the direct meaning, and but also represent something else.
4. Go online and research the book. If you find a video of someone singing a song about the book, you will have more fun learning about it.
5. Just keep reading. Chances are, the best part of the book is at the end.
