Removing the Word "Reluctant" from "Reluctant Reader."
Stringer, Sharon A.; Mollineaux, Bill
English Journal, v92 n4 p71-76 Mar 2003
Explores how positive approaches to reading benefit reluctant readers by connecting important psychological principles about adolescence. Notes that if educators get away from the notion that difficulties signal inadequacy, then they can share complementary strengths with reluctant readers. Suggests that labels harm reluctant readers at a time when they are most sensitive to social comparisons with peers. (PM)
