Inspire learners′ passion for reading!

Every day, secondary school teachers face the challenge of engaging students in essential reading tasks. This accessible text links key instructional practices with current research on reading motivation, engagement, and classroom context to help reluctant learners become active readers.

Featuring contributions from content teachers working in collaboration with reading researcher John T. Guthrie, Engaging Adolescents in Reading offers examples that vividly illustrate how motivation looks from the teacher′s vantage point and how students can experience deep reading engagement. The writers discuss teaching frameworks, student activities, and textbooks, and demonstrate how to use classroom-tested motivational approaches. This insightful book shows educators how to:

  • Infuse reading assignments with significance and meaning
  • Present choices that encourage students to take charge of their learning
  • Tap into adolescents′ social natures through group activities
  • Build proficiency and confidence in struggling readers

With examples from the content areas, these strategies help teachers increase adolescents′ engagement with texts and boost their reading enjoyment.
