Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association, Atlanta, GA.

We first examine each of these dimensions separately, then consider how they interface and play out differently as individuals become more competent in a subject-area domain. Knowledge Students must possess two bodies of knowledge to deal well with domainspecific texts: linguistic knowledge and subject-matter knowledge. Linguistic knowledge encompasses all knowledge and skills required in the processing and use of written language. That universe of knowledge includes such basics as phonological ability, the ability to decode words by using letters and their corresponding sounds and vocabulary knowledge in understanding the conceptual meaning of words.

Students who have an interest in the domain or topic may be more willing to exert the effort required to read strategically than students who are neither situationally or individually interested. Similarly, students who have learning or performance approach goals may be more strategically engaged in text-based learning than students who have performance avoidant or work avoidant goals. Knowledge and interest have been linked in the research literature in other ways as well. For example, students with more subject-matter knowledge consistently display higher interest in the specific topic or domain (Alexander, 2002).
