Any ideas for motivating and engaging reluctant readers in upper elementary level...specifically boys? I think getting to know them and learning their interests is the first step. Then it's important to get them to read more than just paper books to branch out to websites, online magazines, and even introducing them to ebooks or having them write their own ebooks to share with others about what they are interested in (after doing a little research. Maybe even having them help out in the media center/ library would allow them to feel a sense of ownership and maybe gain a love of books and other reading material. I know this is just a start, sooooo.... Anyone have any other ideas?
