I am a teacher of emotionally disturbed young adults. I am looking for some motivational activities to encourage my students to go to books for escape and pleasure. Having read some of your books I have tried to motivate my students toward your books. Do you think reading to them is still a positive experience? Sometimes they just want to fall asleep. They have not grown up with books or encouragement in the home. Mostly they just don't care... about anything... It is often discouraging... I try to motivate them by writing and using computers. They are now writing a short autobiography. It is often like pulling teeth. They will share their stories verbally but roadblocks appear when it comes to the edit and revising stage !! Can you share some of your frustrations and cures with me?? Have you spoken to teens these days? Do you have some ideas??... Thank you for your time...
