A Study of Boys' Reading.
Telford, Lesley
Early Child Development and Care, v149 p87-124 Feb 1999
Examined how reading attitudes of Year 6 boys in British primary schools were influenced by gender issues, peers, and peer group culture. Found that confidence and experience shown in private reading was at odds with boys' public attitudes in discussion with peers. Suggests that siblings and adults might provide more positive role models for reading than found at school. (Author/KB)
