DE Reading First students' motivation and opportunity to read: Student survey results
Delaware Education Research & Development Center
This study surveyed and compared reading motivation and reading behaviors of first, second, and third graders in Delaware Reading First (DERF) schools with that of similarly aged students in comparison schools and a national sample. Data for this study was gathered in the fourth year of DERF’s five year implementation and was used to answer broader questions of the program’s impact on students: Do Reading First students read more frequently? Are they more positively disposed toward reading?
