Reading Attitude of Struggling Elementary Students
Chang, Sau Hou
Online Submission
The present study investigated the reading attitude of struggling elementary students at risk for reading failure. Twenty-nine first-grade and 32 second-grade struggling readers were given the Elementary Reading Attitude Survey (McKenna & Kear, 1990). First-grade struggling readers favored more academic reading activities while second-grade struggling readers favored more recreational reading activities. The percentile ranks of reading attitude of first-grade struggling readers were below the 50th percentile, and those of second-grade struggling readers were slightly above the 50th percentile. No differences were found in reading attitude between first-grade and second-grade struggling readers. The paper also discussed limitations of the study, suggested future research, and recommended implication for practice. [This article was published in "Indiana Reading Journal" v43 p11-18 Fall 2010.]
