MetadataShow full item record
Student motivation is a root problem in education today. Since reading is a core skill for any student to be successful in an academic environment, librarians and teachers have found that motivating students to read is an important task. This review of literature reports on studies and theories held by researchers and educators on motivation techniques including using extrinsic rewards as motivation, specifically in reading incentive programs. This research also provides a discussion on ways educators can provide students with opportunities to be intrinsically motivated to read.
