Hill, Katherine Jane Roney
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene University
The project addressed the debate over supplemental literature: young adult or classic selections to better support teaching ninth graders Tennessee's English I curriculum standards. Research supported both classical and contemporary literature for teaching ninth graders, making it difficult to determine which type of literature might produce the best results for students' achievement. This project also considered which type motivates students to read and if reading motivation affects students' achievement. While no statistical significance was found in answer to any of the proposed questions, the young adult supplemental reading group outscored the classic and choice groups in all categories.
