- Motivating the Reluctant Reader Through Technology: 25 Resources
- Wednesday, February 27th at 4pm ET
“It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.” – Oscar Wilde.
Oscar Wilde has it right and all readers can easily relate to this quote. But, what about those students who are reluctant to read, or worse yet, don’t read at all. What does it say about them? What about their future? Not only does it scare us to think about our students’ futures without a desire to read, but also it saddens us to think about all they will miss because not one teacher could create the magic that ignites the passion for reading.
In our community’s next webinar, Dr. Rob Furman will use the 10 principles for motivating reluctant readers cited in the article, “Taming the Wild,” by Pamela Allyn, to explore more than 25 resources you can use with reluctant readers. He will include technology apps, web sites and programs that create a supportive environment for the reluctant reader and can instill the all-important passion for reading. Join Dr. Furman on February 27th to learn how to motivate your reluctant readers through technology.
