I have picked out and even ordered/received most of our curriculum for next school year. My big problem is Literature. I have one AVID reader, and one very reluctant reader.... For the avid reader, my current plan is to give her a list of books to read "for school" and a list of ideas for a project at the end of each book. Then I'm going to leave it up to her to schedule it on her own (she's going to be a 6th grader and I want to encourage her independence and time management). But my reluctant reader, I just really don't know what to do. I want him to read books, and this year a tried to have him fill out a daily reading journal, but it didn't work out. It is like pulling teeth to get him to read anything other than directions of his work (and somedays, he's not real willing to do that). Any suggestions for how to make reading fun for him?
