Research shows that an alarming number of students report they are learning to hate reading. This can be a painful realization and the reason why so many educators understand the importance and value of being motivated to read. As educators, we want to flip that paradigm and create motivated and engaged readers. What does that mean exactly? It means reading with increased stamina, understanding the value associated with reading and engaging in the classroom culture and discourse.
Through an extensive review of current literature and research, this edWebinar will reveal what educators can do to counteract this decline in motivation through strategies that will not only boost motivation but will have a positive, powerful impact on reading achievement.
Whether you are an administrator, specialist, or classroom teacher you will walk away motivated to integrate a number of the ten different strategies that will be discussed. There will be time to get your questions answered after the presentation.
