Abstract

Nudges encourage behaviors without mandating them. Using nudge theory, teachers can create a "choice architecture" to encourage students to read more and more honestly. This paper compares nudges versus mandates in extensive reading. We give numerous examples of ER nudges and suggest ways to research nudge theory to promote extensive reading.
