To encourage boys' reading, look to book clubs

To encourage boys' reading, look to book clubs | Fisher Elementary 5th and 6th Grade Book Club | Scoop.it

"Boys prove to be more eager readers when it's a social activity. Some area elementary schools have introduced reading clubs after noticing boys' scores on school reading assessments lagged behind those of girls.

 

...Children's authors and book publishers, as well as librarians and teachers, have responded by producing and stocking more boy-friendly materials, including action-adventure, humor and literary nonfiction."

Authors Who Skype with Classes & Book Clubs (for free!)

Authors Who Skype with Classes & Book Clubs (for free!) | Fisher Elementary 5th and 6th Grade Book Club | Scoop.it

"Welcome to the Authors Who Skype with Classes & Book Clubs List!  I’m Kate Messner, the children’s author and educator who maintains this site.  I started it because I’ve found that virtual author visits are a great way to connect authors and readers, and I realize that many schools facing budget troubles don’t have the option of paid author visits. With that in mind, this is a list of authors who offer free 15-20-minute Q and A sessions with classes and book clubs that have finished reading one of their books."
