A Survey of Certain Attitudes Toward Reading and Television in Fifth-Graders.
Phelan, George, Jr.; Starkey, John D.
An attitude profile of fifth-grade school children on reading versus television watching was prepared, which also collected data on the physical access to books and television sets. Using a questionnaire, the data from 124 responses were compared with the body of existing research findings. It was found that most of the television watching time is for entertainment, and it has only a minimal effect on school work in general and reading in specific. (HAB)
