The Impact of the Directed Reading-Thinking Activity on Critical Thinking Skills in Third Grade Students.
Barron, Cecilia
A study determined if the Directed Reading-Thinking Activity (DR-TA) method would raise levels of critical thinking in students. Subjects, 20 third-grade students, used the DR-TA for 30 minutes each day for a period of approximately 8 weeks. Subjects were pre- and posttested using the Thinking Skills Assessment and the Reading Attitude Inventory. Results indicated that the DR-TA: increased subjects' higher-order thinking skills; and increased positive attitudes toward reading, although the gain was very small. (Two tables of data are included; the Thinking Skills Test, the Reading Attitude Inventory, a letter to parents, and 71 references are attached.) (RS)
