Ten Ways to Cultivate a Love of Reading in Students

Ten Ways to Cultivate a Love of Reading in Students | Young Adult Reading | Scoop.it

"As a teacher, I was obsessed with cultivating a love of reading in my students. I love to read, loved it as a kid too. I'm equally compelled to ensure that my own child loves reading -- and he does. I well aware that I'm on a mission -- but I also know it's a worthy one!

Here are ten suggestions for how any teacher, teaching any subject can participate in this mission, and how parents and administrators can help."

Great Fantasy YA Novels for Book Clubs

Great Fantasy YA Novels for Book Clubs | Young Adult Reading | Scoop.it

The following titles will appeal to longtime fantasy fans and might hook readers who shy away from fantasy in their normal reading. Some of these are new, some are old, some are more obvious choices, and others are easily overlooked. What they have in common is thought-provoking premises and compelling characters — just what you need for a good book club discussion.
