Elementary School Teachers' Reading.
Duffey, Robert V.
The reading habits of inservice elementary school teachers were surveyed through questionnaires administered in the summers of 1966 and 1972. The present study examined the findings of the two surveys for differences and possible inferences. Answers were sought to such questions as what magazines other than professional education journals were read; which professional education journals were read regularly; what books, other than textbooks, were being read; what books had been read in the last twelve months; who favorite authors were; what books were considered for reading next; and whether or not time was set aside during the week for reading. The overall differences observed between the two groups were considerably less extensive than the similarities. The compelling similarity was the amount of non-reading reported by so many teachers in both groups. (HOD)
