I thought I would share some of the presentation here for those who want to know a bit more about the history, about the research. I do this in hope that some of you will go and read Norvell, Carlsen, LaBrant, Krashen, Allington, Kittle, and Miller. I also hope that if there is someone in a doctoral program casting about for research that he or she might consider replicating some of the past studies to see how they hold up over time. I replicated a study by Jerry Johns for part of my dissertation that was quite revealing. My study included a survey of more than 1200 middle school students. I would love to go back now, 25 years later, to see if anything has changed. Are students concepts of and attitudes toward reading different now? I suspect there has been some change in attitude, but I am willing to bet that their concept (or what is more likely to be their misconceptions) about reading has not shifted much. But, instead, I offer some of the power point I shared with the leaders at CREST.
