Physical Education

Address how you will implement one of the four instructional features to increase reading motivation in your Physical Education Objective: Learners will describe how to implement an instructional feature to increase reading motivation in their content area. Consider the reader who sits down to lunch with a new novel that she has chosen. She becomes so engaged in reading that she loses track of time. After turning the last page, she notices that the sun is setting and her lunch sits untouched beside her. Her reading has motivated her because she is interested in the subject matter and curious about what will happen to the characters. Consider another reader who has just brought home a new computer. He is eager to set it up, but the directions are complex, directing him to follow a series of steps to install the programs. Opening the directions, he begins to read carefully and with purpose. He is highly motivated to read well to gather the information needed to set up his computer correctly. Motivation and engagement make reading enjoyable, increase strategy use during reading, and support comprehension (Guthrie & Wigfield, 2000). It is no surprise that those who enjoy reading read more or that reading more improves reading outcomes. Finding ways to motivate and engage students in reading is an essential feature of adolescent literacy instruction. The Challenge Struggling adolescent readers often lack the motivation to read. This lack of motivation impairs their comprehension and limits their ability to develop effective reading strategies or learn from what they read. Which, in turn, limits their exposure to important content-area information, world knowledge, and vocabulary. A Suggestion Increasing students’ reading motivation does not single-handedly improve reading skills; however, attention to motivating students should occur within a comprehensive reading program in which necessary reading skills and strategies are taught to struggling readers. What Do Successful Readers Do? The table below summarizes the features of successful and struggling readers in the area of reading motivation. *Adapted from Guthrie & Wigfield, 2000. Recommended Instructional Practices Associated with Improved Motivation. Because motivation to read is distinct from more generalized motivations to learn, we include only those related to reading motivation. Unlike other features of reading instruction, teachers do not provide explicit instruction in reading motivation. Instead, attention to increasing motivation occurs during the planning and implementation of reading activities. Many studies have grouped several motivational strategies, since many are interconnected.
