How can teachers motivate students to read more?
It is the frequent complaint of teachers, especially at the secondary level. Many studies have given various suggestions and programs have been devised. It is my personal belief that students need to be around others who read, share what they read and read what interests them. So, the first motivator is in the home and then with teachers in school. Share your own readings with your students. Display interesting, grade level, and currently published books matching films such as Twilight etc in your classrooms.Also display magazines and graphic novels. What better motivation than to allow them to read what they like to read?
