Diary of a Word Nerd: Offer a Magazine to a Reluctant Reader

Diary of a Word Nerd: Offer a Magazine to a Reluctant Reader | Reading Promotion for Teens | Scoop.it

"Walter Dean Myers, our current Ambassador for Young People’s literature said it best - reading in today’s society is a necessary skill. Not optional. Necessary.

 

So how do we entice reluctant readers to hone their skills? We find them something they want to read - and realize that might not be a book.

 

While we shouldn't make generalizations about guys and reading (I live with three males who love pleasure reading), I found interesting information from the study quoted at education.com: ..."

Boy Books or Girl Books

Boy Books or Girl Books | Reading Promotion for Teens | Scoop.it

"Shannon Hale offers insight (and, for this reader, at least, a touch of heartbreak) in her post, Why Boys Don't Read Girls (Sometimes). It's about boys reading “girl” books. A lot is written about reading, and boys reading, and girls reading. (See my post from a few months back, Boys, Girls, Books, for instance).

Hale addresses a specific issue: boys being taught by society that some books are too “girly” for them, that books are indeed either “girl books” or “boy books” and that this artificially keeps boys from reading books they would otherwise like."

Michael Rosen: Reading for Pleasure Conference - first impressions

Michael Rosen: Reading for Pleasure Conference - first impressions | Reading Promotion for Teens | 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."

Jordan Brown: Writing for Boys

Jordan Brown: Writing for Boys | Reading Promotion for Teens | Scoop.it

"If a boy is told that reading a graphic novel isn't real reading--if reading is seen as work or punishment--who's going to start to think of something as enjoyment. If boys don't develop a love of reading, they're not going to get to any of those other books that people want them to read."
