Encouraging Your Junior High Student To Read.
This booklet shares ideas, guidelines, and suggestions to help parents of junior high school students help their children read more and derive more pleasure from reading. The booklet focuses on the "why's" and "how to's" of two central issues in promoting reading for pleasure: supplying a wide variety of interesting reading materials, and making time to read. Following an introduction and a section on how to use the booklet, the booklet is composed of five sections: (1) "Why Reading for Pleasure Is Important"; (2) "General Guidelines for Parents"; (3) "Finding Time"; (4) "Gathering a Variety of Interesting Materials"; and (5) "Encouraging Reading for Pleasure: It's Worth the Effort." Lists of sources for parent's reading and of resources for parents from the International Reading Association conclude the booklet. (SR)
