Overview

Listening to the Voices of Boys: Exploring the Motivation of Primary Boys to Engage in Reading by Krista Griffin

A volume in Literacy, Language, and Learning
Series Editor: Wen Ma, Le Moyne College

Motivation to engage in reading is a consistent problem for students in general and boys in particular. To solve this problem, we often seek answers from everyone but those we are hoping to motivate. We read the latest article on motivation and think we have finally come up with the recipe that will motivate all of the boys in our class. When it doesn't work for everyone, we go back to the drawing board and try something else until we finally understand that all boys are motivated by different things.

That is the basis of this book: nothing will work for ALL boys, but there are ways to equip teachers to find out how the boys in their classes are motivated. It provides them with a direction to go once they've established the needs of their students and offers suggestions for how to meet individual motivational needs. Each chapter addresses a different motivational need, providing background information and practical classroom applications.
