The Relationship between Wide Reading and Listening Comprehension of Written Language.
Hedrick, Wanda B.; Cunningham, James W.
Journal of Reading Behavior, v27 n3 p425-38 Sep 1995
Uses hierarchical regression logic to isolate the relationship between wide reading and reading-related language development in 122 fourth graders. Finds that higher levels of wide reading were associated with stronger listening comprehension ability. Finds indirect evidence to suggest that wide readers may be increasing their listening comprehension ability. (RS)
