Hook reluctant readers by finding books that appeal to them! Graphic novels, sports themed books or whatever!
Advocates for more “boy-friendly” education have been arguing for some time that schools should include more reading materials that boys tend to like, such as action-oriented stories and graphic novels, in an effort to motivate boys to read.
Nontraditional materials such as comic books and sports-themed materials can provide an important “hook” to get boys more involved in reading.
