Abstract: 

The main goal of this study was to determine the relationship between interest in literature and social development of students. The population of this study comprised all male and female students enrolled in the fifth, sixth and seventh grades in educational zones 1 and 2 in Ardabil during the 2010-2011 academic year. A sample of 617 individuals was selected using a multistage randomized cluster sampling procedure. In keeping with the aims of the study, a correlational research method was used. The tools used in this study included a researcher constructed questionnaire, a test of social development and Raven’s Progressive Matrices. Multiple regression analysis showed that books, sports, science, and history magazines contribute positively, while poetry and art books contribute negatively to the prediction of social development. In this study, books and sports magazines played a greater role in the prediction of students' social development. Gender and grade differences in social development were also explored.
