From Surviving to Thriving: Four Research-Based Principles to Build Students' Reading Interest
Springer, Sheree E.; Harris, Samantha; Dole, Janice A.
Reading Teacher, v71 n1 p43-50 Jul-Aug 2017
In an educational climate in which many teachers may feel the tension between achieving grade-level literacy standards and creating lifelong readers, interest can be a powerful mediator that impacts students' cognitive and affective experiences with reading. This practical article presents four research-based principles of reading interest--individual interests, situational interest, text-based interest, and interest regulation--and describes how each can be used and implemented in the classroom to nurture motivated and resilient readers.
