MOBILITY OF STUDENTS IN READING GROUPS.
HAWKINS, MICHAEL L.
THIRTY-FOUR TEACHERS OF GRADES ONE THROUGH SIX WERE ASKED TO REPORT THE CHANGES IN READING GROUP COMPOSITION IN THEIR CLASSROOMS OVER A PERIOD OF 17 WEEKS. TWENTY-SIX TEACHERS HAD AT LEAST 3 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND WERE SUPERVISING STUDENT TEACHERS. THE OTHER EIGHT HAD 2 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND HAD COMPLETED A GRADUATE COURSE IN READING. THEY WERE EMPLOYED IN CITIES OF 20,000 OR MORE IN COLORADO, ILLINOIS, INDIANA, IOWA, AND KANSAS. OF 940 STUDENTS REPORTED IN THE 34 CLASSROOMS DURING THE 17-WEEK PERIOD, 9.1 PERCENT WERE CHANGED IN THEIR READING GROUP. OF THE PUPILS CHANGED, 61 PERCENT WERE BOYS AND 38 PERCENT WERE GIRLS. OF THE 34 TEACHERS, 41 PERCENT MADE NO CHANGES IN READING GROUP COMPOSITION FOR THE DURATION OF THE STUDY. CONTRARY TO EXPECTATION, READING GROUP MOVEMENT DECREASED IN THE UPPER GRADES. DETAILED STATISTICS ARE PRESENTED, AND POSSIBLE REASONS FOR THE FINDINGS ARE DISCUSSED. TABLES AND REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "THE READING TEACHER," VOLUME 20, NOVEMBER 1966.
