Boys Reading Strategies

Posted: June 20, 2012 by hcakir in Learning Strategies, Resources

We found that the availability of rich and varied resources such as magazines, newspapers, non-fiction texts, graphic novels, and books that reflect the interests of boys led to sustained silent and focused daily reading time for our boys in intermediate classrooms. At the end of the first year of the project, we concluded that engagement is critical to the improvement of both reading attitudes and achievement for boys as well as girls. On the yearend survey, many of our students reported that they enjoyed reading only when given an opportunity to choose reading material that appealed to their interests.
