4 Ideas For Motivating Adolescent Male Readers

4 Ideas For Motivating Adolescent Male Readers | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

It’s no secret that state and national assessments continue to indicate that boys lag behind girls in the area of reading.

 

The gap tends to grow larger as students enter adolescence. It’s also no secret that many teenage boys dislike reading — in class or at home. Just ask a high school teacher…or a teenage boy. While it’s not true that all teenage boys dislike reading, there is a growing trend of many becoming unmotivated readers. Obviously, students who are resistant to reading are unlikely to get better at it. Here are four ideas for motivating adolescent male readers.

Insightful Tips on How to Integrate Problem Based Learning in Your Classroom

Insightful Tips on How to Integrate Problem Based Learning in Your Classroom | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Project based learning and problem based learning are two didactic approaches to learning that are often used interchangeably to refer to the same thing: engaging students in authentic learning activities. This truism does not always hold true. In a learning task that is problem based, the focus is on finding solutions to the problem posed through applying learned strategies and in so doing the process of arriving at the solution is, in and of itself, an integral part of the overall learning taking place .

How To Kill Learner Curiosity In 12 Easy Steps

How To Kill Learner Curiosity In 12 Easy Steps | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Do you use the Dewey Decimal Classification at your school? Can your kids figure out what "142.780973" means? Would they know where to find the "Sports" books? Using this logic, many schools are wondering if they and their students might be better served using a book-store model, or genres, when it comes to their fiction collection…. but where to begin?

Your vocabulary at age 40 depends on how much you read as a teenager

Reading for pleasure as a child has been powerfully linked in research to the development of vocabulary and maths skills up to the age of 16. But does reading still have a part to play in the breadth of our adult vocabulary? Does it matter what kind of books you read, or is it just the amount of reading that counts?
