A Study of Children's Reading Behavior.
Data are presented from two studies of the amount and kind of reading done by adolescent boys. Study 1 examined the family context of boys' reading and the relationships among boys' print use. It sought to answer such questions as "What parental behaviors are effective in socializing children's print use?" and "Are there relationships between parents' and childrens' use of the print media?" Subjects were 137 Seattle families of tenth-grade boys. Study 2 also examined relationships among boys' different print behaviors and explored correlations between print use and reading skills. Its subjects were 381 ninth- and eleventh-grade boys in three Seattle suburban school districts. Methodological details for each study are presented in sections where the relevant data are analyzed. References and tables are included. (Author/RT)
