Why boys' literacy skills lag behind girls' and how to bridge the reading gap

Why boys' literacy skills lag behind girls' and how to bridge the reading gap | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it
Much of this is what we have been hearing forever, it seems, but make sure you get down to How To Bridge The Reading Gap. Noted literacy researcher, William Brozo, has some sensible ideas that work and are very replicable, including honouring personal choice of reading material.

"While there are certainly intellectual aspects to readers’-advisory work, passion forms the foundation of what we do. We need to be passionate individually about what we read, listen to, and view. If we aren’t, how can we possibly understand readers’ enthusiasm for the titles and types of materials they enjoy?"

Michael Morpurgo: We are failing too many boys in the enjoyment of reading

Michael Morpurgo: We are failing too many boys in the enjoyment of reading | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it
Author of a big shelf full of books for young readers (including the wonderful War Horse), Morpurgo has some common sense ideas about developing readers.
"Perhaps it is partly that we need to love books ourselves as parents, grandparents and teachers in order to pass on that passion for stories to our children. It's not about testing and reading schemes, but about loving stories and passing on that passion to our children. This might seem naïve and of course the problem is cultural and deep-seated too and therefore unlikely to be resolved quickly, but there must be things we could perhaps do to try to turn things around over time."
