Resources for Working with Reluctant Readers

Resources for Working with Reluctant Readers | All things Literary | Scoop.it

"Are guys reluctant readers? That question is debatable; the truth is some guys are and some guys aren't, just as some girls are and some girls aren't...

 

...People will read, when they find something they connect with. Our job as librarians (and teachers and parents) is to help them make those connections.  Here are some resources that can help you do that."

Getting Boys Reading - Alan Gibbons

Getting Boys Reading - Alan Gibbons | All things Literary | Scoop.it

"According to National Literacy Trust research only one in four boys read out of class every day. So how do we turn the three in four into regular, eager readers? I don’t think there is anything complex or mysterious about this question. Boys read when they feel there is something in it for them. When there isn’t, they don’t.

 

Can’t read, won’t read? Rubbish! There are huge differences between the number of boys who read in a school with a strong reading culture and a school with a weak one. It is not inevitable and it has nothing to do with biology."
