Reading for Pleasure: Guidelines.
Spiegel, Dixie Lee
Intended for classroom teachers and administrators who want their schools to reflect commitment to the idea that reading for pleasure is an essential part of every successful reading program, this book provides suggestions by which educators can coordinate their efforts with librarians and parents to get children to read voluntarily. The book is divided into two sections. The section on theory discusses background information on the importance of having a recreational reading program and reports the research on recreational reading. The section on practice presents ideas on motivating students to read for pleasure, initiating a recreational reading program, managing classroom time for recreational reading, and managing materials for a recreational reading program.
