Gale's Thorndike Press Studies Students and Large-Print Books
Thorndike Press, from Gale, released new research on large-print books. It finds that “students in grades 3-12 who read large print books developed stronger reading skills, felt more comfortable reading and adopted new, positive reading mindsets.” Education nonprofit Project Tomorrow conducted the research on behalf of Thorndike Press to “investigate the impact of students reading large print-formatted books on their reading engagement and achievement levels. Nearly 1,700 students in grades 3-12 and 56 teachers and librarians across 15 U.S. elementary, middle and high schools participated in the study.”
