Abstract

How does the Guided Reading strategy influence students in an elementary classroom? To find out, a study was conducted among sixth-graders over a four-month period at the beginning of a school year. Students completed the Elementary Reading Assessment Survey (ERAS), once at the beginning and once at the end of the study. Journals and Guided Reading Experience rating forms were also used throughout the study to indicate changes in reading attitude. Results from the ERAS generally indicated indifference, whereas journal entries and rating forms showed a positive attitude shift. It is important to consider the repercussions of positive affect for students due to reading experiences in school because of the potential for better achievement in other academic areas.
