How Literacy Tasks Influence Children's Motivation for Literacy.
Turner, Julianne; Paris, Scott G.
Reading Teacher, v48 n8 p662-73 May 1995
Finds that the most reliable indicator of students' motivation for literacy learning is not the type of reading program that districts follow, but the actual daily tasks that teachers provide in their classrooms. Describes open tasks that provide challenge, choice, student control over learning, and opportunities to collaborate with others and to construct meaning through reading and writing. (SR)
