The increasing numbers of students enrolling at the school with LBOTE will increase the need for an explicit and systematic phonological awareness and phonics program, taught simultaneously (Fellows & Oakley, 2014, p. 226). While reciprocal reading technique will allow the teacher to spend more time with struggling readers, the Reading Recovery initiative provides students with strategies using multiple cues to discern errors while simultaneously constructing meaning (Chapman & Tunmer, 2016), and increasing motivation (Bates, D'Agostino, Linda, & Xu, 2016). As research indicates that boys are less motivated to read as compared to girls (Munson-Warnken, 2017), the school librarian must maintain consciousness regarding the higher ratio of girls to boys at ENPS, and ensure the shelves in the library reflects books holding wide appeal to both sexes, rather than gendered and stereotypical ‘boy books’ that sets the sexes as
