Summary

A study investigated whether students instructed in the use of dialogue journals in reading classes would show a significant increase in reading comprehension as compared to students who did not use dialogue journals in reading class. Subjects, 77 seventh- and eighth-graders in an Iowa School, were assigned to either experimental or control groups. Students in the experimental groups wrote in their dialogue journals instead of doing workbook pages or skillsheets. Groups met with their reading teachers 42 minutes per day for five months. Results showed highly significant differences between the means of the scores from the two groups, indicating that reading methodology which incorporates expressive writing results in significant improvement in students' reading comprehension. (Five tables of data are included and 62 references are attached. Appendixes include letters to students and parents.) (SR)
