Abstract:   (3295 Views)
The research was carried out to investigate the level of motivation to read English books across genders and teachers' perceptions on students reading motivation in Malaysian classroom. Respondents in this research were 20 students currently studying Primary Four in a co-ed urban school in Johor Bahru. The data was collected using adapted Motivation to Read Profile from previous research (Gambrell, Palmer, Codling & Mazzoni, 1996) renamed as The Reading Motivation Profile (RMP) and Teachers' Perception Interview (TPI). After triangulating the data, the result analysis indicated that female students have a higher reading motivation to read English books than male students and teachers' perception agrees with the result of the RMP. In conclusion, teachers and the school should incorporate a variety of reading activities and programme to promote reading that will help foster reading motivation.
