Motivating Literacy Learners in Today's World
Fletcher, J., Ed.; Parkhill, F., Ed.; Gillon, G., Ed.
"Motivating Literacy Learners in Today's World" provides insights into a broad spectrum of children's literacy learning. Motivation is the key theme and the authors show how this can be achieved through reading for pleasure; in writing activities at a number of levels; and through oral language development. Chapters include: (1) Motivating children to read through literature (Teresa Cremin); (2) Motivating young writers (Noella Mackenzie); (3) Writing in primary and middle schooling: Managing myths about student motivation (Judy M. Parr and Kathryn Glasswell); (4) Supporting students who struggle with language (Elspeth McCartney and Sue Ellis); (5) Phonological awareness: Motivating early literacy success (Gail Gillon and Brigid McNeill); (6) Motivating children with dyslexia (John Everatt and Gavin Reid); (7) Fostering story comprehension: Motivating struggling readers to engage in literature-based activities (Marleen F. Westerveld); (8) Motivating Maori students in literacy learning: Listening to culture (Angus Hikairo Macfarlane); (9) Motivating Pasifika students in literacy learning (Jo Fletcher, Faye Parkhill, Amosa Fa'afoi and Tufulasi Taleni); (10) Asian student voices: Approaches in reading that motivate or provoke dissonance in their journey towards being successful readers of English (Faye Parkhill and Jo Fletcher); (11) Playing with text (Janinka Greenwood); (12) Multiliteracies and learning in a new age (Nicola Yelland).
