More About This Textbook

Overview

It's no secret that boys in the United States are at great risk of failing at school, due in large part to their disinterest in traditional literacy texts. The first edition of To Be a Boy, To Be a Reader shed light on a novel way to boost boys motivation to read and increase their achievement in school-and set them on a path of lifelong literacy. And now, the bestselling, oft-cited classic is back in a fully updated second edition, packed with helpful, timely advice and resources for your middle or high school classroom.
To Be a Boy, To Be a Reader centers on engaging boys with books that contain positive male archetypes such as the Pilgrim, Patriarch, King, Healer, Prophet, and Lover. In these pages you get
* Full descriptions-with literature examples-of all 10 archetypes
* Classroom vignettes that show how teachers have successfully integrated these books into their teaching
* A brand-new chapter that focuses on using alternative texts such as graphic novels and comic books
* Fresh ideas for involving parents and community leaders in boys literacy growth
* An expansive, fully updated young adult literature list, organized by the 10 archetypes
