Investigating Reading Preferences, Reading Attitudes, and Teacher Observations of Third Graders.
Reiff, Judith C.
Matching teaching strategies and classroom environment to students' learning preferences has been found to be related to students' self-concept and achievement. By identifying the learning and reading style of each student, the teacher will increase the youngster's chances of being successful, thus having a positive effect on the child's self-concept and cognitive development. The purpose of this study was to describe a practical approach for identifying learning and reading differences in the elementary classroom which could be replicated in any teaching situation. Sixty-five third grade children were administered a Learning Style Inventory, a Reading Style Inventory, and a Reading Attitude Inventory. This investigation demonstrated children have similarities in their learning preferences, but the extent of individual differences continues to warrant further examination. (Author)
