Building Reading Confidence in Adolescents offers a unique framework to build students' literacy skills at the middle and secondary levels. Based on their research and experience, the authors provide strategies to help learners grow in four key areas: confidence, independence, metacognition, and stamina. The text explores critical elements such as the classroom environment and teacher-student interactions; discusses how to create instructional frameworks for developing more proficient readers; and provides practical solutions for all types of classrooms - from urban centers to rural settings.

"A tremendous book. Research shows and teachers know that motivation is a central challenge facing teachers today. This text provides fresh insight into self-efficacy, an essential component of motivation, by exploring what it is, how to cultivate it, and how to nurture it in the context of innovative teaching that develops literacy competence in a range of areas." -- Jeffrey D. Wilhelm, Professor of English Education
"Both practicing and preservice educators from all content areas need this amazing collection of constructive concepts and strategies that affect adolescent readers' attitudes toward academic and non-academic literacy. This book not only exposes educators to why facilitating engagement with reading is important, but also shares how to help adolescent readers enjoy a lifelong relationship with literacy." -- Vicki Sellers, Language Arts/Social Studies Teacher
