  • Boys don't read ... ?

    Feb 5, 2016
    By Karen Suter, Middle School learning specialist

    “Boys don’t read.” Parents, teachers, and the media commonly make this statement. However, at The Haverford School, boys do read. In the Lower School, they are excited about being able to read chapter books, and they talk with zeal about new books in their favorite series. By fifth grade, they are starting to share Young Adult (YA) fiction. In sixth grade, boys continue to recommend books to each other and to read with and for pleasure. But, there are some troubling national trends, and parents and educators can work together to keep boys on track to become successful young men.
