The purpose of this study was to explore teachers' perceptions of African American males with an Individual Education Program (IEP), literacy motivations to assist teachers in augmenting students' self efficacy and literacy competence. The theoretical framework was derived from the expectancy theory of motivation which places emphasis on individual perceptions and the interactions that follow as a consequence of personal expectations. The researcher used a survey to determine which strategies teachers believe to be most motivational for high school African American males receiving a special education to read. The survey included 27 motivational strategies and practices acquired from previous studies and research among all age groups. An open-ended question was included to determine the most motivational strategies.
