Can You Be a Teacher of Literacy If You Don't Love to Read?
Powell-Brown, Ann
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v47 n4 p284-288 Dec 2003-Jan 2004
In this article, the author asserts that it is impossible for a person who does not love reading to be a good literacy teacher. She discusses the reasons her undergraduate preservice teaching students give for having given up on reading as a pleasurable activity, presents strategies her graduate students used to begin to enjoy reading, and offers tips for using a personal love of books to motivate elementary, middle, secondary, and college students to read.
