Reading Interests, Habits, and Attitudes of Eleventh Grade Students in Montgomery, Alabama.
Dewberry, Robert Preston
This study focused upon the reading interests, habits, and attitudes of high school junior English students. A survey instrument was used to collect data concerning differences among groups of students (sex, race, and academic placement) in terms of preferred reading materials and areas of interest, specific reading interests, actual reading habits, and attitudes toward reading. Analysis of compiled data showed no significant differences between the groups' rankings of types of reading materials or between the groups' rankings of areas of interest. However, there were shown to be specific types of reading materials characteristic of various groups, specific areas of interest characteristic of various groups, and differences of reading activities of the various groups during the regular school term and the summer months.
