Abstract

Students entering high school and college are expected to have the skills needed to read many forms of complex texts to contribute to an increasingly complex society. The lack of reading motivation and engagement observed in our high schools today is creating a concern that these students will not be able to keep up with the complexity of today’s texts. This curriculum project examines strategies educators can use to improve their skills and motivation by giving students a sense of autonomy over their education and providing a series of supports to ensure success at every step of the reading process.
