Any ideas on what to do with struggling Junior High readers? I want ways to improve their reading fluency and comprehension. Been digging for songs and poems to use with them but it's not been easy. My students are in 6th to 8th grade and read anywhere between two grade levels below and just barely below grade level. I have 11 JH students that I work with for half an hour three days a week. This makes it difficult to find strategies that work well in such limited time. Also most of them are very disenchanted in reading and just don't want to be in my class. The past years they have worked mostly with ReadingPlus and Great Leaps and I feel they are really burnt out on these programs. Any feedback would be great. It's my first year doing Title and I have over 50 students K-8.
