The Effects of Reading Serial Books on Children's Appreciation for Quality Literature.
Nixon, Holly
In this study it was hypothesized that if a young reader repeatedly chooses a serial book for pleasure reading, then appreciation and ability to choose and recognize quality works will diminish. Four sixth-grade English classes recorded their independent reading choices for five months. Those who habitually read series books were chosen for the study. These students were then interviewed to determine their reasons for choosing both their series and non-series independent reading and their perceptions on the literacy quality of these books. The findings in this study did not support the hypothesis. (Contains 37 references and 5 tables of data.) (Author/RS)
