Helping Boys Find Entry Points to Reading Boys and Books: Closing the Reading Achievement Gap (K-12)

Too many boys do not like to read, are choosing not to read, and are suffering academically as a result. More must be done to reach disengaged and striving male readers. The presenter, Dr. Bill Brozo, has devoted over a decade of study to the causes of boys' underachievement in reading and has discovered numerous ways to reverse that trend. Dr. Brozo will offer critical insights into literacy and masculine identity as well as practical suggestions for transforming boys into engaged readers.
