FRANCO, Sandra Aparecida Pires  and  MOLINARI, Andressa Cristina. The importance of reading and the perceptions of undergraduates on the outreach course "reading and writing in the university: a transformative practice". Rev. Inter Ação [online]. 2013, vol.38, n.3, pp.663-675. ISSN 0101-7136.

This study analyzed how students on an Outreach course at a public University in northern Paraná perceive the act of reading. To do so, data collected from a questionnaire were used to find answers to three questions: what is reading? What is its importance? Where does it happen? With a view to contribute to the formation of reader students in school and University circles, we started from a conception of reading beyond that of decoding words. The research subjects were six students participating in the Outreach Course. The study also points out the need of implementing activities in the school to help move on from the practice of mechanical reading and failure to interpret. The methodology involved was of an interpretative nature using induction.
