Engagement is an important consideration for students' literacy learning. However, engagement in literacy tasks has received limited attention in the research literature. This study investigated students' affective engagement across various literacy tasks. The researchers conducted classroom observations and student interviews to document students' affective engagement in literacy activities. Data analysis revealed that students were affectively engaged in tasks where they acquired new information and when the activities were perceived to be fun.
