Summary

This discussion presents ways in which disadvantaged secondary students in an inner-city school may be motivated to read. Some ways are (1) giving training in the teachings of reading to secondary teachers, (2) making the disadvantaged students aware that reading is a lifetime learning process and that all hope is not lost if basic reading skills lag somewhat, (3) making the students feel that they can learn to read, (4) developing a respectful and friendly atmosphere in the classroom, and (5) keeping lessons on an adult and life-centered level. Suggested topics for life-centered reading lessons are listed, and a school-wide reading project in Gary, Indiana, which included an inservice workshop, is described. (Author/DE)
