Thank you for participating with the KSLA community of readers and learners.
We look forward to learning from our author Ellin Oliver Keene and our colleagues, how to engage children in their daily learning.
Here are the first two discussion questions for chapter one.
- Ellin Keene discussed the negative effects that reading rewards and reading for “pie in the principal’s face” tactics has on students’ reading behaviors. Why is it not better to do both extrinsic and intrinsic rewards? Discuss your school’s ways that motivate readers and suggest some of your thoughts now after reading chapter one.
- After reading chapter one, what are your understandings of the differences between compliance, participation, motivation, and engagement?
