Boys' Reading Commission Report 2012 (UK) - 1 views

  •  
    The Boys' Reading Commission has found that boys' underachievement in reading is associated with the interplay of three factors:
    -  The home and family environment, where girls are more 
    likely to be bought books and taken to the library, and where 
    mothers are more likely to support and role model reading;
    -  The school environment, where teachers may have a limited 
    knowledge of contemporary and attractive texts for boys 
    and where boys may not be given the opportunity to develop 
    their identity as a reader through experiencing reading for 
    enjoyment;
    -  Male gender identities which do not value learning and 
    reading as a mark of success.
