I encourage reluctant readers by having them seek out books in a genre that they are interested, i.e. fiction, newspaper, science fiction, etc.
I help students find books that are of interest to them. First, I find out what their interest is – travelling, music, type of sports, etc. Then I make those books available for students to read.
I tell them about the book that I have recently read. I share with them my opinion about it.
