Relationships between Affective Measures and Reading Success of Low Income Black Children.
Cuchens, Barbara Dianne
In order to examine factors associated with success in reading, reading teachers in four middle schools identified low-income black students in grades six, seven, and eight who met specified criteria for success or failure in reading. Results from a series of affective tests indicated that significant relationships existed between low-income black children's success in reading and their perceptions of their reading teachers' attitudes toward them; attitudes toward school and school work, toward reading, and toward their reading classes; perceptions of their parents' attitudes toward school; and self-concepts as measured by the How I See Myself Scale. No significant relationships were found between success in reading and children's relationships with their families, their mothers, and their fathers; attitudes toward the future; and self-concept as measured by the Tool 22: Sentence Completion Form.
