Televiewing Interests and Reading Interests of Seventh Grade Students of Shawnee, Oklahoma.
Penny, Mary Elizabeth
This study investigated the significance of differences in percentages of reading and televiewing interests between seventh-grade male and female students within socioeconomic status (SES) levels by interest categories and among SES levels for male and female students by interest categories. SES levels of the students were determined and students were assigned, according to sex, into one of three SES groups. Sixty males and sixty females, randomly selected from 361 seventh graders, were administered the Televiewing Interest Questionnaire and the Reading Interest Questionnaire. Both reading topics and televiewing topics on the two questionnaires had been classified into six categories: Adventure, Romance, Mystery; Religion; Arts and Music; Amusements, Sports, Games; Humor or Fanciful; and Information. The analysis of the data for the study resulted in the following conclusions: (1) sex was not a determiner of reading interests or televiewing interests; (2) SES was not a determiner of reading interests or televiewing interests; and (3) for each SES level, reading and televiewing interests in the categories of Adventure, Romance, Mystery; Religion; and Arts and Music were not related.
