    • Abstract:
      The premise that course material must engage the students' interests if the instruction is to be successful guided this pilot study, which was conducted (1) to test the effectiveness of two instruments designed to determine the reading and media preferences of college freshmen, and (2) to determine the reading and media preferences of freshman English students at George Peabody College for Teachers. The in-class administered questionnaire answered by 23 volunteer subjects consisted of 15 sections concerning students' contacts with magazines and newspapers, their reading of books, their reading preferences and habits, and the books they owned; a take-home questionnaire gave the same students a chance to check the lists of books they remembered reading and owning. The second portion of the study involved a two-week activities log on which 20 students recorded their participation in television and movie viewing; radio, record player, and tape player listening; newspaper, magazine or journal, and other kinds of reading; and classwork not involving reading. Results showed that data obtained from the log sheets were more reliable than data obtained from questionnaires. Included are 58 tables of findings and materials related to the two test instruments.
