Gambrell, Linda B.; And Others
Research in Education for Adult Learners, v1 n2 p5-15 Win 1989
An inventory collected responses from 63 adult beginning readers and 41 proficient readers regarding beliefs, feelings, and behaviors about consumer, social context, work-related, at-home, and recreational reading. Many views of the two groups were similar, although beginners disliked reading complex materials and reading aloud, do not read at home as much, and have fewer reading materials at home. (SK)
