The Effect of a Paired Reading Program on First Grade Reading Achievement.
Vitolo, Danielle
The purpose of this study was to determine if a paired reading program had a significant effect on first grader's reading achievement. Fifteen students in the experimental treatment were randomly paired to read stories. The study took place over a period of 10 weeks in a small suburban school district. Fifteen other students in the control treatment participated in sustained silent reading over the same 10 week period. The California Achievement Test was used as a pre and post test to measure achievement in vocabulary and comprehension. Findings suggested that both programs seemed to have a positive effect on reading achievement; however neither approach produced a statistically significant difference over the other. (Contains 37 references and the control and experimental vocabulary and comprehension scores.) (Author/RS)
