  1. When I worked at a secondary school we had a great online service that set students quiz questions on a book they had read (they could pick from literally hundreds in the library). The questions were good in that they showed achievement (if you got the answers correct) and could also be used to demonstrate how well a student had grasped the concepts in the book (depending on how hard the questions were). Students got satisfaction out of getting the quizzes correct and teachers got all the data they needed about the amount (and level) that the student was reading at.

    • Tough! Short term I would say simple rewards – stickers on a progress chart. Is just shows them how often they are reading and that you are proud of them. Setting a big reward at the end defeats the object! It has taken time and encouragement but my daughter finally reads for fun. It took a few things though – the most important was finding books she enjoyed reading (Roald Dahl for her).
