Abstract:

"This volume is a thoughtful synthesis of current research conducted at the National Reading Research Center (NRRC). Blending investigations on the motivational, social, and cognitive needs of young learners, Engaged Reading presents a new perspective on reading development. Whether you work with students of mainstream or diverse backgrounds, in inner-city or affluent suburban schools, the concept of engaged reading is crucial to the current debate concerning reading instruction.

This authoritative book covers qualities and practices of engaged readers; practices for elementary, middle, and high school classrooms; the influence of family literacy beliefs and interactions; the range of methodologies used by literacy researchers; and policy implications of the engagement perspective."--Jacket.
