The Impact of Attitude on Literacy Development

In an urban school setting, twenty, first-grade students were studied over a 5 month period of time. These students were each given an initial reading attitude inventory in October of 2006. This inventory consisted of yes or no statements. The students' reading level was also obtained by the Development Reading Assessment. In March, the students' reading level and reading attitude survey will be obtained again. From this data, it should be able to be determined whether a students' attitude toward reading correlates with and influences students' reading development. With the results, measures can be taken to instill students' with positive reading attitudes, which, in turn, will be able to improve literacy development.
