Abstract:

The study aimed to ascertained the relationship among the reading skills, television watching, leisure-time reading and homework of the 170 randomly selected students of Polytechnic State of College of Antique and Saint Anthony's College, school year 2002-2003. The researcher-made data-gathering instruments, specifically, a reading test and a questionnaire, were used to gather the data along with the attached information sheet. The study employed means and standard deviations as descriptive statistics, and the t-test, the ANOVA, the Stepwise Multiple Regression Analysis, and Pearson's Product Moment Coefficient of Correlation set at .05 as inferential statistics. The present study revealed that the third year high school students had average reading skills. They were inclined to watch television and do their leisure-time reading activity but they accomplished their homework sometimes. Moreover, gender, family size, and fathers' education, along with television watching and leisure-time reading were found to be significant factors influencing the students' reading skills. Interestingly, mothers' education was found to be a significant predictor of the students' accomplishment of homework.
