MOTIVATING STUDENTS TO ACTIVELY ENGAGE IN READING Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • An understanding of human motivation is an essential component of effective reading instruction. Rather than rely totally upon making activities “fun” for students, this paper proposes that the understanding of basic theories of motivation can result in a pervasive concern for motivation in the classroom. Utilizing a balance of intrinsic and extrinsic means of motivation, teachers can set the stage for increased involvement and learning. © 1982 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
