Motivating Reluctant Readers.
Ciani, Alfred J., Ed.
Representing views on many facets of reluctant readers, the chapters in this book provide suggestions for working with students who function at a frustration level and those who have an aversion to reading. Specific topics discussed in the book's nine chapters are: (1) building language experiences for reluctant readers, (2) home remedies, (3) using popular music as a motivation device, (4) recent adolescent literature as an alternative to serial books, (5) starter shelves in content area classrooms, (6) using student publishers to promote book sharing, (7) motivating children to read through improved self-concept, (8) the camera as a tool for teaching reading, and (9) services that can be provided by the reading laboratory or resource room.
