Comparison of Time on Print between Instructional Level and Remedial Readers in Second Grade.
Suling, Molly; Horton, Jennifer
A study examined the amount of time instructional level and remedial readers in second grade were engaged in reading connected text during an entire school day. Subjects were six instructional and six remedial readers who were observed in six different schools. Time engaged in reading connected text was defined as students' eyes following several sentences of connected text reading orally or silently. The median number of minutes engaged in reading connected text was between 32 and 33 minutes. Differences in the amount of time observed between the two groups of readers did not fall into a consistent pattern. In three schools instructional readers read more and in three schools remedial readers read more. (Contains 14 references; classroom observation notes and a range of reading times, with two figures, are appended.) (Author/CR)
