Dr. Gay Ivey talks to us about motivation in reading, building relationships with kids around books, and what happens when we create circumstances in schools where students drive their own reading and learning. Gay is known for her work in the areas of reading engagement as a tool for improving the academic and relational lives of children and adolescents. Dr. Ivey is the William E. Moran Distinguished Professor in Literacy at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro.
