The Study of First Graders Ability To Respond to and Analyze Picture Books.
Kosanovich, Marcia L.
A study examined evidence that first graders are able to analyze and respond to picture books. The study resulted from the collaboration of an eighth-grade class and a first-grade class. The eighth graders were given the task of writing, illustrating, and reading a picture book for the first graders. The first-grade class was randomly divided into five groups of six. Subjects used a story web to identify and respond to the four story elements: setting, characters, problem, and solution. Results indicated that first graders pay attention to detail and are capable of identifying elements in analyzing stories. Findings revealed that they can respond to picture books and give valid reasons why they like or dislike a book. (Contains three references, a story web, a sample response chart, and quotations from first-graders.) (Author/CR)
