Gambrell, Linda B.
Reading Teacher, v50 n1 p14-25 Sep 1996
Describes briefly several studies identifying classroom factors associated with literacy motivation in elementary school students. Discusses six research-based factors related to increased motivation to read: a teacher who is a reading model; a book-rich classroom environment; opportunities for choice; familiarity with books; social interaction about books; and literacy-related incentives that reflect the value of reading.
