File1:

Although most people consider piranhas to be
quite dangerous, they are, for the most
part, entirely harmless.

Piranhas rarely feed on large animals;
they eat smaller fish and aquatic plants.
When confronted with humans, piranhas'
first instinct is to flee, not attack.

Their fear of humans makes sense. Far
more piranhas are eaten by people than people
are eaten by piranhas. If the fish are well-fed
they won't bite humans.

Television shows, movies, music, and even
video games today are filled with literary
references, but many people do not understand
them because they do not read.

To be successful in American society, one
must be able to read fluently and analytically.
As adolenscents are becoming adults in America,
they must learn reading skills in order to be
successful.

Reading is beneficial to adolescents as it
helps develop social skills, by involving
readers in a variety of social situations,
and academic skills, as readers learn new words
to expand their vocabulary.
