About the Author:

John T. Guthrie is the Jean Mullan Professor of Literacy in the Department of Human Development at the University of Maryland, College Park. As Director of the Maryland Literacy Research Center, he studies motivations and strategies in reading at all school levels. Before coming to Maryland, he was Research Director for the International Reading Association. He began his career at Johns Hopkins University, where he founded the Kennedy School for children with reading disabilities. His works on reading engagement have been published in the Reading Research Quarterly, the Journal of Educational Psychology, and the Elementary School Journal. He is a recipient of the Oscar Causey Award for Outstanding Reading Research, a member of the International Reading Association Hall of Fame, and the 2004 recipient of the University of Maryland System Regents’ Award for research/scholarship/creative activity.

Review:

"From tapping into adolescent social natures through group activities to building proficiency in those with reading problems, this book is an outstanding set of tips for overcoming reluctance in readers."--The Bookwatch, June 2008 (07/15/2008)

"A must-read for all middle and high school teachers interested in motivating and engaging students to enhance their reading development and help them enjoy it at the same time."--Lesley M. Morrow, Professor of Literacy (09/28/2007)

"Finally, a book that targets reading motivation and engagement during the critical years of middle and high school. This rich compendium of information offers a solid plan of action for teachers who want to ensure that their students are highly motivated literacy learners."-- (10/12/2007)

"Meticulously synthesizes research to give credibility to teaching practices that enlist, challenge, and instill confidence and self-efficacy in unmotivated and disenfranchised adolescents. An important addition to the professional library of educators who want to complement the current emphasis on strategies instruction and achievement with an intelligent overview of how motivation and engagement undergird student success, competence, desire to read, and enjoyment of learning."-- (10/17/2007)

"Practical instructional ideas that promote motivation are presented by teachers themselves, preserving the unmistakably authentic ring of actual classroom discourse. Each chapter, however, is written in collaboration with Guthrie, an outstanding researcher in this area who extends and contextualizes the models with reference to more than 200 studies, confirming the validity of each approach."-- (07/11/2008)
