Effects of Folktales as Bibliotherapeutic Aids in Changing Attitudes of Seventh Grade Remedial Readers.
Bauer, Robert C.
Thirty-two seventh-grade remedial readers participated in a study of the effects of seven folktales upon specific attitudes. A 28-item Likert scale containing four items specifically related to each folktale was administered as a pretest and readministered three days later as a posttest. Analysis of results indicated that there had been no significant change in attitudes as a result of reading the seven folktales. Only three of the 28 items on the scale showed any significant change in attitude, and, for two of these, the change was from a desired attitude toward an undesired one. In most cases, attitudes were well established and unyielding. Limitations of the experiment are discussed. Instruments, raw data, and copies of the folktales used are included as appendixes. (AA)
