Our school provides home readers for students to read at their independent reading level which every student is meant to take home. I was shocked to hear a colleague say that she has not given her class home readers for 2 terms as they read in class. A lot of our students are below standard when it comes to reading, comprehension and writing. According to her, the students don't like home reading and won't do it. They will take the books home and bring them back unread so why bother sending them home! What strategies and ideas can you share? I believe this teacher needs to think about changing the negative attitude her students have towards home reading. Love to hear your ideas.
