This paper proposes a study to investigate the relationship between the student motivations towards reading and its impact on reading achievement. The theoretical framework is obtained from the early intervention model of situational-motivation developed by Paris and Turner (1994).

From the Paper:

"Early Intervention (EI) was launched in the 1970's and since then it has evolved immensely and at present EI practitioners need to be specialists and licensed. A number of research studies have been carried out since the 1970's that address students in primary grades (Bricker & Widerstrom, 1996; Greeno, Collins, & Resnick, 1996; Klein & Gilkerson, 2000; Miller & Stayton, 2000; Pajak, 2001; Stayton, Miller, & Dinnebeil, 2003; Winton, McCollum, & Catlett, 1997). For instance, Klein & Gilkerson (2000) in their research conclude that the specialist interventionists are the key in Early Intervention Programs. Similarly, Greeno, Collins, & Resnick (1996) give emphasis to on-field experiences for practitioners. It is important to note that majority of the studies talk about importance of individual homework before, during and after intervention of students in primary grades."
