Pre-Freshman College Students Share Their Views on Reading.
Giddings, Louise R.
A study investigated how pre-college students enrolled in a summer remedial reading program felt about reading. Subjects, 170 students recently accepted for admission to a large urban university system, were asked their views on (1) reading, (2) school and education, (3) reading instruction, (4) difficulty and enjoyment of reading, and (5) reading and careers. Results indicated that the students viewed reading as an important skill in society and one that helped to improve a person's standard of living. Other responses revealed that not much emphasis had been placed on individualization or small group instruction in secondary school reading programs, and that most subjects had not been encouraged to read very much beyond their textbooks.
