    My 7th graders love me to read to them. I always read to them for about 15 minutes before we go to lunch. When choosing a book, I pick several, give them an overview of each, and then read the first chapter of each one. Then they vote on the one they want. One year I had a class finish 7 novels just by me reading to them for 15-20 minutes a day. I usually picked age appropriate books that were a bit hard for their reading levels. I'd even let the kids recommend books to me.
