A Survey of Reasons for Book Selection of 6th Grade Students.
McCullough, Carolyn L.
A questionnaire was distributed to 81 sixth-grade students in an effort to find out the reasons why they chose one book over other books. The 2-item questionnaire was also used to compare reasons given by male and female students to see if there were differences in their responses. Subjects were from 4 classrooms chosen at random from 7 classrooms from a middle school during the 1994-95 school year. The questionnaire asked which book (from a list of 7 books) did the students choose first in the unit on animals and why they chose that book. Results indicated no significant difference--both boys and girls responded that they liked stories about animals. (Contains one table of data and four references. The questionnaire is attached.)
