Book Quest : a reading adventure for boys

Book Quest : a reading adventure for boys | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

"BookQuest is a response to the lower literacy rates of boys. It is a program designed to get boys reading, to get them into the library. It is a reading adventure for boys..." F. Berndt, K.Henry & A.Lagos. 

 

An excellent program proposal to download for ideas on engaging boys in reading. Includes links to References and Appendices. Program aimed at boys aged 9-12.

 

The authors also had an article published in ALIA's INCITE magazine (Vol.33, Issue 6, June 2012: 24), titled 'A reading adventure for boys'.  In the article, they explain "as part of our studies we were assigned the task of developing a hypothetical program designed to meet the specific needs of a target group".

Michael Rosen: Reading for Pleasure Conference - first impressions

Michael Rosen: Reading for Pleasure Conference - first impressions | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

Michael Rosen gives wise commentary on some of the issues raised at this conference.
"... if you connect a reading for enjoyment programme across a whole school, connecting it to sheer volume of reading AND to rewards and awards decided by the authority of the school - no matter how kind or well-meaning - then the emphasis in the children's minds will not be on the two key aspects of reading that, I would say, would impact on writing: a) personal unravelling of meaning through silent reading b) open-ended, unrewarded, ungraded talk."
