"Motivation" is a regular column feature in issues of the journal "The Reading Teacher." Each column presents techniques for motivating students to read that have been submitted by readers of the journal. This compilation gathers together ten columns appearing across 1984-1985. The ten columns deal with the following topics: (1) listening and following directions; (2) building independent learners; (3) writing; (4) oral expression; (5) staying on task; (6) using peer influence to motivate students to read; (7) offering students opportunities for active, personal involvement in the reading program; (8) using techniques that allow students to recognize themselves as invaluable school resources; (9) using strategies involving the principal's office as a source of positive motivation; and (10) creating an environment in the reading laboratory that motivates students to read. Each article presents background information on motivating students within a particular skill area, and suggests ways to assure student participation. (EL)
