When Students Don't Do the Reading, What Can You Do?

Various books thrown out in a large trash can.

We love it when students come to class well-prepared, engaged by the material, and ready to learn. But what happens when they don't do the reading? What can you do aside from giving (still more) quizzes, or dismissing the students to come back another day, or (shudder!) assigning less reading (lowering your standards)?

The Resources listed below offer some terrific suggestions. Take a look; try one; and share the results by emailing me (Cheryl Spector). With your express permission, I'll post a summary of what you did and how well it worked to address your classroom challenge.
