Overview

Marilyn Reynolds has brought many disaffected, school-hostile, and wholly unmotivated students into the ranks of lifelong readers. In this concise, practical book, she shares techniques she has used and personal anecdotes that reveal much about reluctant readers and teachers who struggle daily to engage them. Among many other key topics, Reynolds discusses:

  • the importance of respect for students' attitudes, experiences, perceptions, and choices regarding reading
  • tips for motivating reluctant readers
  • classroom management issues
  • tudent/teacher/program accountability.
In addition to insightful analysis, Reynolds devotes a good portion of her book to practical, immediately usable resources, including answers to frequently asked questions, prompts for teaching, and a separate section of "Tricks of the Trade" with logs, forms, an extensive list of "hit" books, and much more.

Read Reynolds and offer your reluctant readers the gift of a reading habit.
