Books Info:

Engaging Adolescents in Reading free pdf Teachers in secondary schools regularly face students who are unmotivated to engage in essential classroom reading assignments. Beginning with an examination of the reasons students avoid such reading assignments, this resource aims to arm teachers with solutions. Written by teachers, in collaboration with renowned researcher John Guthrie, Engaging Adolescents in Reading depicts five vital classroom practices for engaging adolescents in reading. Each practice is linked to a key motivational quality such as interest, ownership, confidence, collaboration, and the desire to understand texts fully. These motivational strategies can be initiated immediately in any subject matter that involves books and texts, and can become the foundation of a renewed structure for teaching in a school.
