PREP: Primary Reading Engagement Program
Votypka, Jean
Reading Improvement, v55 n2 p47-53 Sum 2018
Primary students who struggle to read need incentive to redirect their mindset back onto the productive path of daily reading. Reading is daunting to the youngest readers who experience difficulties because the act of reading is difficult and tiresome. Effective reading engagement programs motivate these readers to read on a daily basis and accomplish grade level achievement. Previous studies on reading engagement programs focus on motivation related to middle and high school students. Various studies have discussed reward related to middle school students' reading but few are specific to reward related to readers who experience reading difficulties in kindergarten through second grade. This article presents a model for incentivizing reading in kindergarten through second grades when motivation is of paramount importance. This incentive program will support teachers in primary intervention environments who work with young readers who experience difficulty with word recognition as well as reading comprehension.
