Giving boys a love of reading
If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that one blog in my RSS feed is written by Lisa Belkin. Belkin's blog, Parentlode, can be found in the Huffington Post. Many of Belkin's posts speak to me on a personal level, and some circle into my professional life as well.
If you have boys, or have boys in your classroom, I recommend reading this post. In it you'll learn about an acronym READ (ritual, environment, access, and dialogue), ways to make reading part of the active lifestyle boys tend to lead, and a slideshow of humorous books boys might like. Enjoy!
