The Role of Shared Reading in the Development of Phonological Awareness: A Longitudinal Study of Middle to Upper Class Children.
Burgess, Stephen
Early Child Development and Care, v127-128 p191-99 1997
Tested assumption that variability in home literacy environments has no effect on individual differences in reading development. Found that variability in shared reading interactions was significantly related to growth in phonological awareness even after accounting for the effects of age, oral language, and phonological awareness at the beginning of the study. Also found support for cumulative exposure as an important aspect. (MOK)
