The purpose of this study is to illuminate the importance of reading motivation in the school classroom and to show how reading levels correlate to students' reading motivation. This study also focuses on the ways in which highly motivated readers can foster stronger reading comprehension and habits. This is important to study because reading motivation has decreased in classrooms, and in 2005 a national U.S. survey illustrated that 4th grade students did not look at reading as a preferred leisure activity (Becker, McElvany, & Kortenbruch, 2010, Guthrie, Mcrae, and Klauda, 2007); moreover, low reading motivation is often linked to low reading skills (Morgan & Fuchs, 2007). This study illuminates the importance of intrinsic motivation in students because it is a strong building block for "high-quality learning" (Ryan & Deci, 2000).
