That's what I heard at meet the teacher today. How do you get kids to read who hate to read? Honestly, I've never had anyone who hated to read in my class before. Do you provide him with only books he's interested in? (For this kid: super heroes) My only concern with this is not everything he's going to read is going to be of interests if he's ONLY reading what HE likes. (ie: the material on state exams, homework, classwork etc.) Or is the hope that you provide him with books to get him interested? Can anyone recommend a way for me to help make the reading process FUN for him, that does not include AR points? If it helps, he is gifted.
