Comic Book Reading, Reading Enjoyment, and Pleasur

Type: All Ages
Price:
 

Description

Research by Steven D Krashen which examined comic book reading in two middle schools of different socio-economic class, one middle class and one less affluent, in order to determine the extent to which comic book reading varies with social class. For both groups, those who read more comic books did more pleasure reading, liked to read more, and tended to read more books. These results show that comic book reading certainly does not inhibit other kinds of reading, and is consistent with the hypothesis that comic book reading facilitates heavier reading.
