Engaged Reading: Processes, Practices, and Policy Implications

Guthrie, J.T. & Alvermann, D. E. (Eds.). (1999). Engaged reading: Processes, practices, and policy implications. New York, NY: Teachers College Press.

Various reading topics are explored including the definition of "engagement in reading."  What does it look and sound like?  What reading goals should be set for elementary students and how does that affect motivation?  How does social interactions affect motivation in middle and high school?  How do opportunities at home foster reading engagement?  Finally, what changes can be made on a national level to create school reform on this topic?
