Boys And Reading

Boys and reading is a hot topic. Arthur Slade (author of Dust, one of my favorite books of all time) recently blogged about getting boys to read. It's a great round up of tips and links, including SIBYLs (songs inspired by literature) and using YouTube and podcasts.

    Just posted at Art's site, but wanted to add here.

    I am starting a Guys Read at my jr. high at the end of the month and will do themed booktalks, guest speakers, blogging, and podcasting.

    I'm recruiting guys from a boring, end-of-day study hall so I'm hoping for a crowd.

    If you're thinking of doing this, write some grants. Boys' literacy is so big that I got two from local organizations--one for $500 in books and one for $200 for podcasting equipment.
