Increasing Positive Attitudes towards Recreational Reading.
Smith, Sandra A.
A practicum developed and implemented reading strategies to increase the positive attitudes toward recreational reading of a third-grade target group. The practicum focused on five central strategies for achieving objectives: alternative book reports, home leisure reading, guest reader program, read-aloud student response journals, and writing and publishing original works. Thirty minutes a day over a 12-week period were devoted to read-alouds and independent discussions as well as independent responses. Results revealed a successful increase in positive attitudes of the target group. Appendixes include a reading survey and data, sample forms, and suggested readings with related critical thinking questions and activities. (Five figures are included.) (SR)
