Summary

The study examined the reading interests, attitudes, and habits of fourth, fifth, and sixth grade gifted students. The data were gathered from the 69 state assisted gifted programs in Missouri by means of a survey developed by the investigator. The Ss were limited to the fourth, fifth, and sixth grade gifted children whose program coordinators participated in the study. The data gatherred from the 19 program respondents were analyzed in terms of means, standard deviations, and cumulative percentages. The analysis of data indicated that gifted children had a highly positive attitude toward reading. The data also revealed that the favorite reading interests of gifted children were comedy, mysteries, adventure, myths and legends, and stories about boys and girls their own age. However, the data compiled on reading habits indicated many differences related to the sex of the reader. Various form letters, the survey, and statistical analyses are appended. (Author)
