    http://www.guysread.com/

    This is a website developed by author Jon Scieszka to help promote literacy for boys and to help them select material of interest to them. The site was designed because of a lack of male literacy role models for our male students and evidence that boys tend to be asked to read books which don't appeal to them, creating unmotivated male readers . On this site one can select texts that guys enjoy reading, learn strategies to help guys read, and start their own GUYS READ chapter.
