The Influence of Parent Awareness of Successful Reading Strategies and the Impact on Children's Reading Behavior and Attitude.
Frank, Cheryl
The purpose of this study was to determine if a parent workshop on reading strategies would increase students' use of reading strategies and improve both parent's and child's attitudes toward reading at home. Fourteen parents from an affluent suburban first grade attended. The parents represented students from below average to above average reading ability. The parents answered a questionnaire before and three weeks after the one-hour reading strategies workshop. Raw data was converted to means and standard deviation and analyzed using t tests. The difference between the means was statistically not significant. Parents did report many more strategies than were previously known. (Contains 22 references and 4 tables of data. Appendixes contain a letter to parents, the parent survey, and 10 handouts given at the workshop.) (Author/RS)
