Gökhan BAŞ

Abstract


ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to examine the correlation between elementary students’ reading attitudes and their writing dispositions and to determine to what extent students’ reading attitudes predict their writing dispositions. Four hundred and fifteen students from six elementary schools in Nigde, Turkey participated in the study. Students were chosen randomly. In this study, the Reading Attitudes and Writing Dispositions scales were used in order to collect data to answer the research questions. The correlative investigation model was adopted in the research. The Pearson moment’s correlation coefficient analysis showed that there was a positive significant correlation between students’ reading attitudes and their writing dispositions. It was also found that students’ reading attitudes were a significant predictor of their writing dispositions.

Keywords: Reading attitude, writing disposition, elementary education, and correlation.
