A COMPARISON OF TWO METHODS OF LISTENING INSTRUCTION.
KRANER, ROBERT E.
A COMPARISON OF THE EFFECTS OF THE TWO METHODS OF LISTENING AND READING INSTRUCTION WHEN USED IN THE LANGUAGE ARTS PROGRAM AT THE EIGHTH-GRADE LEVEL AS RELATED TO LISTENING, READING, STUDY SKILLS, AND ENGLISH ACHIEVEMENT WAS PRESENTED. ONE HUNDRED FIFTY-SEVEN STUDENTS ENROLLED IN SIX REGULARLY SCHEDULED ENGLISH CLASSES WERE ASSIGNED BY CLASSES TO ONE OF THE TWO PRINCIPAL GROUPS. TWO TEACHERS WERE USED IN THE STUDY. OF THE FOUR CLASSES BEING INSTRUCTED BY ONE TEACHER, TWO WERE SELECTED FOR PART OF THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP USING A TABLE OF RANDOM NUMBERS, AND THE REMAINING TWO CLASSES WERE ASSIGNED TO THE CONTROL GROUP. OF THE TWO CLASSES BEING INSTRUCTED BY THE OTHER TEACHER, ONE WAS SELECTED FOR PART OF THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP USING A TABLE OF RANDOM NUMBERS, AND THE REMAINING CLASS WAS ASSIGNED TO THE CONTROL GROUP. DURING ONE SCHOOL YEAR, STUDENTS IN THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP RECEIVED LISTENING AND READING INSTRUCTION THROUGH THE "LISTEN AND READ PROGRAM" DURING THE ENGLISH PERIOD. THIS INSTRUCTION INCLUDED THE FIRST 25 TAPES OF THE 30-TAPE SERIES. STUDENTS IN THE CONTROL GROUP WERE PRESENTED WITH TEACHER LESSONS COMPOSED OF THE SAME BASIC CONCEPTS AS THOSE FOUND IN THE FIRST 25 TAPES IN THE "LISTEN AND READ PROGRAM," BUT DIFFERED WITH RESPECT TO ACTUAL MATERIALS AND MODE OF PRESENTATION. STUDENTS WERE TESTED FOR GAIN IN ACHIEVEMENT IN LISTENING, READING, STUDY SKILLS, AND TEACHER-PRESENTED INSTRUCTION IN ALL AREAS MEASURED, AND IT WAS SUPERIOR TO TEACHER-PRESENTED INSTRUCTION IN A NUMBER OF AREAS.
