Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v25 n2 p177-193 2011
Within the context of the increasing attention to reading in educational contexts around the globe, this study uses a semistructured interview to explore 93 Jordanian preservice teachers' perceptions of instructional practices for developing young children's interest in reading. The participants reported on 7 major teacher practices they perceive as instrumental in developing young children's interest in reading. These relate to teaching and learning settings, designing reading materials, establishing a classroom library, making use of the local library, using reinforcement, establishing good relationships with parents, and using information and communication technology as a teaching/learning resource. Based on these findings, several implications for professional practice, professional development, and future research are put forth. (Contains 1 note.)
