A Study of the Reading Preference of High School Students.
O'Connor, Marie E.
This paper discusses the role of reading in the lives of high school students and discusses research that suggests ways to motivate adolescents to read. Research reviewed in the paper indicates that the major factors that influence adolescent reading are gender, age or maturity, intelligence, and socioeconomic background. The summary of the literature concludes that many of the problems in getting adolescents to read are still the same as in the past: other pressures on their time, difficulty in finding interesting material, and the encroachment of the media--television in particular--upon their reading opportunities.
