    The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is a global effort to assess reading literacy. The authors of this article focus on the variable of engagement—the student characteristic on PISA that had the largest correlation with achievement in reading. Next, salient findings related to engagement from three English-speaking PISA countries (the United States, the United Kingdom, and Ireland) are presented. The authors conclude with a discussion of lessons about reading engagement derived from findings common to the authors' three nations with implications for policy and practice
