My students are seventh and eighth graders who are enrolled in a reading intervention course that provides them with the tools they need to improve reading fluency and grammar and writing skills in a nontraditional format. The are required to meet reading goals through the Accelerated Reader program, and I have a difficult time motivating them to read to meet the requirement since it only counts as ten percent of the overall grade. When I mention reading for fun, I am met with blank stares or friendly giggles. Library books to me, are magical, but to them, sometimes contain unfamiliar words, too much dialog to follow, and unfamiliar settings. They judge books in the first few pages and return them for another very quickly without finishing the book. This leaves them empty handed at the end of the grading period. James Patterson has written amusing books about the middle school experience that I think will amuse students and give them the opportunity to learn to love reading.
