Most of us are used to following instructions of teachers and accomplishing whatever they assigned. Some people consider that reading what assigned by their teachers is a better way for students to read effectively. However, I strongly hold an opinion that reading on their own can help them develop their independence, read more effectively and get higher achievements.
First of all, reading on their own can develop their independence of study. When they read on their own, they have to search suitable resources, compare with other books and newspapers, and learn relevant knowledge. Meanwhile, students will enable to apply this method not only in reading, but also in other subjects such as math, chemistry and so on. Furthermore, it is beneficial them lifetime because independence is much important in every aspect of their lives such as overcoming difficulties and making choices.
Secondly, reading what decided by themselves could inspire their potential talents, indicates that makes them get higher achievements. If a student is allowed to read anything they want, it will help them discover their interests and inspire them learning deeply. For example, my literature professor constantly read books he is interested with from childhood. He could absorb a large quantity of knowledge and do lots of researches since he was a primary school student. As a result, he got a lots of rewards and became a famous literature professor. Had it not been for my professor was allowed to whatever he want, he would never become a famous scholar.
Admittedly, teachers are more professional so that they can assign valuable books for students to read. Ironically, books assigned by teachers are not suitable to everyone. If a student is assigned to read something he does not accept, he will read ineffectively and trigger his resistance of reading. Therefore, if the reading do students on their own, they will tend to make full use of potential talent and read more effectively.
In conclusion, reading students on their own rather than assigned by teachers could trigger their impetus of studying, develop their independency, and get a higher achievement.
