Motivating Boys to Read

Today I visted the Osceolo Co. Schools in Florida. They had dedicated their professional development day to exploring how they could do a better job with their boys. Makes sense, too, since boys lag so much behind girls. I was flattered that they wanted me to keynote their day, and I built on existing frameworks to suggest what schools can do to encourage boys to succeed. There are some websites and lots of print publications on the topic listed in the power point. Hope this is useful to you.
