Long-Term Effects of Preschool Teachers' Book Readings on Low-Income Children's Vocabulary and Story Comprehension.
Dickinson, David K.; Smith, Miriam W.
Reading Research Quarterly, v29 n2 p104-22 Apr-Jun 1994
Finds 3 patterns of book-reading experiences in 24 classrooms of 4-year olds: coconstructive; didactic-interactional; and performance-oriented. Finds larger gains (one year later) by children in the performance-oriented classrooms than by those in the didactic-interactional rooms. Reveals strong effects of child-involved analytic talk on vocabulary and modest effects on story understanding. (SR)
