What Research Says about the Effects of Television Viewing on the Reading Achievement of Elementary School Children.
Freeman-Towner, Rhonda Jean
A review of the research concerning the relationship between children's reading achievement and television viewing reveals many contradictions. For example, the findings show that the amount of television viewing that affects reading achievement in one child may not affect another in the same way. What a child watches on television also seems to have differing effects. More research needs to be conducted on specific types of programing and their effects on reading. (FL)
