Responses of first-grade children to concepts about printed material before and after shared reading experiences.

Academic Article


  • A study was conducted to investigate the effects of shared reading experiences using books with predictable content to assess 24 inner-city African-American first-graders' concepts about printed material. The 8-week treatment using a two-group pre- and posttest experimental design with random assignment showed no significant differences between groups. A larger sample and longer treatment time are recommended for replicating this study.
