Though boys have been behind girls in nearly every subject for more than thirty years, many teachers and librarians are still struggling to find the key to encouraging boys to read. This YALSA e-course will cover the special issues faced in reaching boys through books. Research on early teen and tween boys will provide students with a glimpse into the differing needs of boys, how they learn and how to captivate boys through outreach, programs (including after school and summer reading programs), readers advisory, book talks, and other ways to utilize course resources that will get boys reading at your library.
