What's Your Literature Quotient?
Ouzts, Dan T.
Because a teacher who demonstrates a love of literature and reading is a valuable model for children, a study determined the knowledge of children's and adolescent literature of students enrolled in a graduate reading methods course. A questionnaire entitled "What's Your Literature Quotient?" was administered to 72 teachers concerning knowledge of Newbery-Award-winning books and 126 teachers were surveyed concerning knowledge of Caldecott-Award-winning books. Subjects were asked to identify a book's title based on a brief descriptive phrase. Results indicated that 108 of the 126 respondents (85.7%) correctly identified "Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears," and 51 of the 72 respondents (70.8%) correctly identified "Sarah, Plain and Tall." The two questionnaires and compilations of data (indicating the rank ordering of titles receiving correct responses) are attached. (RS)
