dc.description.abstract Increasing Reading Motivation Through Successful Experiences: Helping English Language Learners Be Successful Readers Anastasia Erickson Vanderbilt University Abstract The purpose of this paper is to provide a review of the research that has been done to date on both motivation and effective reading instruction for English language learners (ELLs). An examination of motivation as a key component of achievement is included, followed by an analysis of some of the strategies for reading instruction that have been shown to be effective in fostering successful reading experiences for ELLs. Successful experiences are a crucial component of promoting motivation in all students, but there is a need for examining those practices that are tailored specifically for non-native English speakers. The focus on ELL students comes from the increasing diversity of schools in the United States, and a subsequent demand for identifying the effective practices for providing reading instruction to this particular population. The paper also includes the author’s attempt to put some of these practices into action through a literacy lesson with ELL students. The results of this lesson are discussed in terms of past research on motivation and the reading behaviors of ELLs. Educational implications and potential directions for future research are also identified. Keywords: motivation, reading, reading instruction, English language learners en_US
