Relative Efficacy of Parent and Teacher Involvement in a Shared-Reading Intervention for Preschool Children from Low-Income Backgrounds.
Lonigan, Christopher J.; Whitehurst, Grover J.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v13 n2 p263-90 1998
Evaluated the effects of a six-week interactive shared-reading intervention with 3- to 4-year olds from low-income families who attended subsidized child care. The intervention involved teacher-reading at school, parents-reading at home, both-reading, or a no-treatment control. Found that significant gains on measures of oral language and language samples were largest for children in conditions involving home reading. (Author/KB)
