What are some good activities for a tenth grade reading workshop?

Most of the students don't like to read.

Give them activities to do while reading. Divide them into groups and give them some time to read the chapter you want them to read that day. Have them plan a reenactment each week of their favorite part in the chapter. They can pick their characters and get involved with the story. Encourage them to give their own interpretations!

I think assigning groups of teenagers to act out portions of literature with different themes could be interesting and fun - easiest example would be like acting out Romeo and Juliet in a country western style, like toddlers, or some other fun motif could make them remember and enjoy.

Find loads of books & magazines on subjects you know your students are interested in. Make up a quiz involving reading the clues, with teenage friendly prizes.


Answer by  blrVoice (1054)

Let the students create a trivia quiz. Each student should find 5 or more questions to a given very specific topic. This will involve quite a bit of research and hence reading (even if it's on the internet) about a subject, you decide. These topics should made public, so that they can prepare for the quiz, which involves again reading).
