Abstract: Reading with Junior is a program that teams up a Grade 3 male elementary school pupil with reading difficulties – or with no motivation to read – with a parent (preferably a father) and a male student in a preschool and elementary school teaching program. The pupil’s role was simply to participate in the project; the university student’s role was to present different types of readings to the pupil and to read with the him and his parent. The parent’s role was to participate in the reading activity and to guide the university student to a better understanding of his child’s interests. Teachers noted that participating pupils were less opposed to reading in class, that they developed more positive attitudes towards reading, and that, in some instances, behaviour problems were reduced. Some parents commented that relationships within the home also improved.
