Genres Galore - Engaging Reluctant Readers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you have reluctant readers in your classroom who can't seem to find a great book to read? This session will cover genres and titles that you may not have considered when helping readers who struggle with finding a great-fit book. You'll come away with some engaging recommended reads in Adventure, Suspense, Horror, Historical Fiction, Science Fiction and Westerns that you can share with your students.
