“Young people don't read. They are only interested in video games and online chatter. Etc. We read and hear that often. The good news is, it isn't! »Recalls the editor of Débrouillards, Félix Maltais. He pursues : “One of the key factors in academic success is developing the ability and taste to read. However, as more and more teachers are realizing, the magazine is very often the ideal tool to get young people to want and like to read. Its characteristics make it attractive: wide variety of subjects, diverse editorial treatments, easy-to-read texts, numerous photos and illustrations, comics, games, interactivity, etc. Everyone will find something to their liking, including "bad readers".
