Moss, Barbara; Hendershot, Judith
Reading Teacher, v56 n1 p6-17 Sep 2002
Describes the results of one part of a two-year-long classroom study of sixth graders' engagement with and responses to nonfiction trade books. Considers what motivated these sixth graders to read the nonfiction titles they chose for small-group and voluntary reading. Concludes that when students are given the opportunity to select nonfiction books, motivation for reading improves. (SG)
