Motivation for Reading
Not always independent
What can Teachers Do?
-Recommend books to students who may not know what kind of books they like.
-Have students explore many different types of texts.
-Facilitate discussion on books and give compelling questions to refer to while reading. This keeps the readers active in the book.
-Determine student reading level by counting the number of unknown words on a page in the book (no more than 5 unknown words)
-What small group discussion questions would be effective to ask in a discussion about independent reading?
-How can teachers know that students are effectively independently reading?
-How can we motivate students who just don't like to read?
