What do you do when students abandon books? I let students choose what they want to read, too, but in the first two weeks of school, a few of my students seemed to switch off a lot. I want to know what you do because I want to help them in this area. I just don't know how yet, really, or I am not sure what is the best way. I have read a few great books, but how do you even address it in a student in-class reading conference in a positive way?
