Reading motivation
Reading Motivation

  • What is reading motivation?

  • How is it different from reading instruction?

  • What is the special role of the library program and the librarian?


WHY?

“We have libraries filled with books, yet many students who enter our media centers are aliterate; they have the ability to read but choose not to. Learn best practices for reaching these students. The number of aliterate students far outnumber the number of illiterate students in the later grades.”

Patrick Jones, Author


“Reading ability is positively correlated with the extent to which students read recreationally.”

National Center for Education Statistics

http://nces.ed.gov/


Reluctant readers say

"I don't read because it is boring." --boy, age 15

“I usually don't read because it gives me headaches trying to focus my eyes on the words.” ­–boy, age 14

“I don't really have time to read during school days and I don't really know which books are worth reading.” ­–girl, age 15

Adapted from Power Point presented by Patrick Jones at AASL 2005
