I love to read. I have read to my children, helped them enjoy reading. I love Shakespeare, poetry, mysteries and more. My oldest son cannot stand Shakespeare, somehow the beauty in the language I see, he cannot. My son loves language and gets a kick out of the subtly in it, but it is still no to Shakespeare for him. My grandmother cultivated that love of beautiful language and reading for me when I was a child. She was always quoting classics and poetry to me. Her father had cultivated that love for her.
I love reading. Some do not. How do we change that? If you are struggling with learning to read as an English language learner, or a native speaker reading can be a daunting thing. So how do we cultivate reading for those who struggle.
Here is a link to an article about how one teacher found a way to help her struggling students learn to love reading.
When you are done, leave me a message on how you have cultivated reading!
