Baiting the Book Hook.
Travers, Robyn Reeves
Principal, v72 n4 p40-41,43 Mar 1993
It is time to stop blaming children's nonreading on innate intelligence, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, TV-watching, or other factors beyond teachers' control. Too many schools are boring kids with dull texts and basal readers. Kids read about topics that interest them and particularly enjoy mystery, adventure, humor stories. Matching genders, reading aloud, and choosing good nonfiction materials are helpful strategies. (MLH)
