Making Literacy Real for "High-Risk" Adolescent Emerging Readers: An Innovative Application of Readers' Workshop.
Taylor, Sheryl V.
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v44 n4 p308-19 Dec-Jan 2000-2001
Describes an innovative approach to the familiar structure of readers' workshop in which troubled adolescent males reexamined their early literacy experiences through the process of reading, listening to, and reacting to children's books. Notes that many of these readers came to see reading as a valuable life activity, a form of enjoyment, and something to be shared with others. (RS)
