Kelekatan Guru dan Motivasi Membaca

Gian Fitria


The research background is the lack of teacher attachment in developing children reading interest. Through a survey approach, this study aimed to describe the conditions of attachment between teacher and child toward children motivation to read. The sample was taken randomly, which consisted of 57 students in grade 3 of elementary school and two teachers. The data was collected by questionnaire and analyzed by using descriptive statistics. The results showed that students' reading motivation based on students' perceptions was in the medium category (40%), while based on teachers' perceptions it was in the low category (82.45%). The positive attachment that occurred was in the low category (63.15%), while the negative attachment was in the low category (78.9%). Teachers need to build positive attachment, especially in increasing students' motivation to read.
