Television's Effect on Reading Habits of Second Grade Students.
Nolan, Helena L.
A study determined if there was a correlation between reading achievement of children in grade two and the amount of time they spent watching television. Thirteen second-grade students responded to a survey given to determine the number of hours they spent reading and the number of hours they watched television over a three-week period. The number of hours spent watching television was correlated with their reading achievement scores. An analysis of the results indicated that the number of hours spent watching television did not negatively affect reading achievement. (One table of data is included; 28 references, the questionnaire, and a table of data are attached.) (Author/RS)
