"I Never Thought I Would Read This Much": Becoming a Reader
Barone, Diane; Barone, Rebecca
Educational Forum, v82 n1 p21-39 2018
The purpose of this qualitative study was to describe the reading volume and book choices of fourth-grade students and how they identified as readers. Students were encouraged to read 50 books independently. The results showed that students read throughout the year. Grade-level readers described themselves as being a part of the book, while above- and below-grade-level readers identified by their rate of reading. All students increased in reading achievement as measured through assessments.
