Drumming Up Excitement for Books: 10 Tips for Reading Teachers

Why don’t our students love to read? Well, use your imagination and pretend you’re a student. You’ve only been reading for seven to twelve years—and most of what you’ve read has been assigned and tested. In addition to this, you’ve been asked to “discuss” and “close read” texts, create book reports, and answer comprehension questions based upon what you read. Sounds like a blast, huh?These are only a few reasons why our students dislike reading, but rather than fixate on all the reasons our…See More
