dc.description.abstractWhile literacy continues to be important during the secondary school years, motivation to read in middle school declines [1, 2, 3, 4]. There is little research on adolescents free-time activities that could include reading [5]. Less is known about differences in urban or rural communities. The purpose of this study was to determine to what extent sixth graders in an urban and rural public school differ in their preferred types of literacy activities, amount of time spent engaging in literacy activities, and the effect of time spent doing homework on leisure reading. Survey results of students from urban and rural sixth grade classes indicated urban students spent more time reading for fun as well as the girls in the study.en_US
