Who's Reading Aloud? Teachers' Oral Reading Practices and Beliefs at the Elementary Level.
Welther, Melissa M.
A study investigated the frequency of teachers' oral reading to students at the first, third, and fifth grade levels. Forty-eight teachers completed a survey designed to determine their frequency of oral reading to students, and their attitudes and beliefs about the practice. The results indicated that teachers viewed oral reading in a positive light and were aware of the many benefits of this practice. Furthermore, teachers at the first grade level read aloud to their students more frequently than do teachers at the third grade level. The questionnaire is appended. (Contains 41 references.)
