I have a new job tutoring high school students in English at an after-school, non-profit academic center.
Today is my third day and I’m enjoying it already.
The center is trying to create some sort of fun program to encourage the students to read more on their own.
My current suggestions extend as far as have books that are fun to read and not school work. I’m also thinking of how to make some of the amazing podcast novels easier for the students to access.
What I am really needing are brilliant ideas on how to get the students reading in a way that actually makes them want to read.
So how would you get high school students to read? What sort of program would you create? Please leave your suggestions in the comments, and feel free to throw in suggestions for what to have on the shelves!
