The purpose of this study is to determine if implementing Kindle electronic reading devices would significantly improve the reading achievement and attitudes of college students at the University of Tennessee at Martin Reading Center as measured by a standardized test and attitudinal survey. These students often have negative attitudes and emotions about reading—we must motivate these students to become effective readers. For struggling readers, some need to hear the words as they see the words in order to advance. With the Kindle II e-books, the reader can see and hear the words concurrently. The Nelson Denny pre and posttests and The Reader Self Perception Survey pre and posttest will be used to measure each student’s progress and attitude toward reading.
