Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Children--Books and reading;
We are creating a nation of alliterates. The vast majority of our population can read and write, but choose not to. The researcher intended to investigate this problem by creating an individualized reading program for a group of fifth grade students. The reading program was designed according to the students· reading levels and interests. The researcher monitored the amount of time the students spent reading for pleasure. The study consisted of three phases. During the first phase, the students chose their reading materials. A computer program assisted the students in choosing their books in phase two of the study. The researcher chose the reading materials for the students during phase three of the study. The researcher found no significant differences in pleasure reading time throughout the study.
