“Oh my God! Why do we have to read? I hate reading.” I hear this all the time from middle and high school students. Many of them also do not do homework because they just don’t read. These are the students that give me a mission as a teacher.
I find out what they are interested in and there is always a book or magazine on motocross, nature, art, or anything else they are interested in. These are the students who either learn in a different way or the motivation to read is not there for a variety of reasons.
