Abstract [en]

The aim of this literature review is to look into reading results among adolescents. One question is what adolescents read today another is how we as teachers can motivate to help students develop their skills for the future. It is important to know how we can motivate and how we can help them see the benefits of reading. The theoretical framework used is the one behind the Concept-Oriented Reading Instructions, CORI. The theory involves five motivation components that explain how reading comprehension affect adolescents and how the adolescents affect their own reading comprehension. The method for this literature review is to find sources that show how adolescents’ reading habits can be described and how motivating them can help the adolescents reach a higher level of reading comprehension. The results are then compared and analysed. The results in this thesis show that motivation is of importance. It can also be seen that those who have a poor vocabulary struggle to read and therefore struggle to further develop a good reading comprehension. The benefits of reading are that the students’ mind, thoughts and ideas get broader and their results are connected with how they perform.
