Middle school students bring various identities into the classroom, including their reading identities and their self-concepts concerning their views of themselves as readers. Using identity and psychosocial and sociocultural theoretical constructs as a foundation, I conducted phenomenological case studies that focused on middle school remedial readers and the means by which their reading identities are constructed within and outside the institution of school. The study investigated in-school factors which impact student reading identities, including interactions with remedial and classroom teachers, as well as out-of-school factors such as family literacy. Although primarily a qualitative study, mixed methods were employed through a questionnaire and survey to further interpret the case study data.
