Abstract

A decrease in reading stamina is a growing trend amongst 21st century adolescents—they live in a world dominated by technology that values brevity. The declining rate of reading stamina and comprehension inspires the research question: How can embedding technology into the high school language arts curriculum increase student motivation, engagement, and academic achievement? To address this growing trend, a targeted standards-based curriculum was developed. This curriculum proposes using technological tools that students are familiar with in order to increase motivation and engagement, ultimately leading to increased comprehension rates and improved academic achievement.
