Video Storytime vs. Reading Storytime.
Montuori, Nancy
This study investigated the differences in recall between children who were read a story from a book and children who watched the same story on videotape. Subjects ranged in age from 2 to 4 years. Four children were chosen at random to listen to a story from a book, and four children were chosen to view the same story on video. The procedure was repeated with four different stories and the children changing situations for each story. Recall tests were given at the completion of each story. A comparison of the scores of control and treatment groups indicated a significant difference in recall in favor of the videotape group. Raw data, recall tests, and titles of the children's books used in the study are appended. (5 references) (GL)
