An Investigation of the Effects of Teacher-Student Conferences on the Reading Achievement, Attitude toward Reading and Amount of Reading by Elementary Children.
Blackwelder, Evelyn McWhorter
The effect of individual teacher-student conferences on reading achievement, attitude toward reading, and amount of reading was investigated in separate samples of third and fourth graders, none of whom had previously had such teacher-student conferences. Results indicated significant differences between experimental and control groups at the fourth- but not the third-grade level for reading achievement and number of books read, and at both third- and fourth-grade levels for attitude toward reading. There were no significant sex differences in reading achievement at either grade level, but girls had a better attitude toward reading and reported a higher number of books read in the third grade.
