Making the Match: Engaging Reluctant Readers in YA Literature | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

"They are what I term the "gauntlet" kids. They come to class and announce proudly that they are not interested in any book you have; reading is dumb, boring, stupid, etc. In essence, they are throwing down a gauntlet: daring you to find a book they might just crack open and read. Gauntlet kids are reluctant readers..."
