Reading: Children Tell It Like It Is.
Johns, Jerry L.; Ellis, DiAnn Waskul
The concepts of reading held by students in grades one through eight are reported on in this paper. Over 1600 children were individually interviewed to obtain answers to the following three questions: What is reading? What do you do when you read? And What would you tell someone reading is if that person were just beginning? The findings reveal that the majority of students have little or no understanding of the reading process. It is concluded that teachers are not providing a basis for understanding the reading process when they teach reading. (Author/RB)
