The purpose of this study is to investigate the subject of reading motivation and to determine if teachers at one middle school in North Carolina are incorporating strategies into their curriculum that may increase studentsâ€™ reading motivation. Reading motivation can influence studentsâ€™ reading comprehension, and if many students have negative feelings about reading or have decreased reading motivation, their comprehension may be directly affected. Teachers of all content areas need to attempt to increase studentsâ€™ reading motivation. In order to determine what teachers are doing to increase studentsâ€™ reading motivation, the teachers were given a survey that investigated teaching practices that may affect reading motivation.
