Help Your High School Student Enjoy Reading
Cathy Fleischer, a professor of English at Eastern Michigan University, is the author of Reading and Writing and Teens: A Parent’s Guide to Adolescent Literacy, published by the National Council of Teachers of English. She says parents can support their kids by encouraging all types of reading, from Internet content and text exchanges with friends to genre fiction and, of course, the difficult books required by teachers. Here are some of Fleischer’s suggestions for inspiring your high school student to read.
