The Effect of Modeling on Reading Selections of Gifted and Non-Gifted Students.
Wolf, Joan Silverman
The effects of modeling procedures on the reading selections of gifted and nongifted students were examined in a group of ten gifted sixth graders, eight gifted fifth graders, and eight nongifted fifth graders. Both adult and combined peer/adult modeling procedures were investigated. Data on selections from the 150 books available in the classroom were collected twice daily for three and a half months. A functional relationship was established, for four subjects, between modeling procedure and the selection of biography and, for two subjects, between modeling procedure and selection of folk tales. Nongifted pupils were affected by the modeling procedure more than gifted pupils were in their selection of biography; gifted pupils were affected more by the combined peer/adult modeling procedure than by the adult modeling procedure.
