Reading Teacher, v69 n2 p239-247 Sep-Oct 2015
The main purpose of this article is to provide educators with clear definitions of motivational factors in reading so that instructional planning can capitalize on important distinctions. The authors present definitions of a small set of related motivational concepts (including attitudes, interests, self-efficacy, self-concept, goals, and value) and show how awareness of the distinctions can lead to more effective teaching. They provide descriptions of appropriate assessments and detail effective instructional techniques.
