Engaging young readers : promoting achievement and motivation( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume demonstrates how promoting children's engagement with reading can greatly enhance reading achievement. The book illuminates what a child needs to become an engaged reader and presents a set of instructional principles designed to facilitate this goal. Helping teachers offer a coordinated emphasis on competence and motivation in reading instruction, chapters blend research evidence with practical recommendations. Topics covered include ways to provide children with a good foundation at the word level, help if they are in trouble, ample time and materials for reading, opportunities to share in a community of learners, instruction that is coherent, motivating, and responsive to each child's strengths and weaknesses, school-wide coordination of instruction, and continuities between home and school. --From publisher's description

Indicators of reading education by John T Guthrie( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Monitoring the effectiveness of reading education is central to the appraisal of the productivity of schooling, yet most measures currently being used do not take into account the full range of processes which lead to successful reading education. A model of indicators relevant to reading education (outcome, process, and input) can be used to judge more accurately the health of the educational system. Outcome indicators, which describe the results of educational efforts, should include performance on the following sub-aspects of reading: (1) decoding, (2) literal comprehension, (3) locating information, and (4) higher order processes. Process indicators measure a means for achieving desired results, and contain the dual traits of instructional effectiveness--quality and quantity. Quantity of instruction includes the number of courses taken, the quantity of reading instruction, and the quantity of reading for homework. Quality of instruction entails not the time, but the events that occur in time that are instrumental for learning. Characteristics of quality instruction include using students' background knowledge, summarizing, and teaching vocabulary and inferencing. Input indicators describe resources for the educational process such as school plant and equipment, educational and ethnic characteristics of students, and literacy materials at home. Indicators such as these can be used for policy purposes, as well as for research on learning and teaching. (Thirty references are attached.) (Mm)
A questionnaire measure of children's motivations for reading by Allan Wigfield( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes the Motivations for Reading Questionnaire (mrq), including information on how the mrq can be used and how to administer and score it. The mrq assesses 11 possible dimensions of reading motivations. It can be used with children in late elementary school and middle school. Scores on the mrq have been shown to relate to children's reported reading frequency, and their performance on different standardized tests. It can be used in various ways in schools: for instance, to generate profiles of children's motivations change over the course of a school year, or to see how boys' and girls' reading motivations differ. Contains 13 references and 2 tables of data. The Motivations for Reading Questionnaire is attached. (Author/RS)
