A DEMONSTRATION OF THE USE OF SELF-INSTRUCTIONAL AND OTHER TEACHING TECHNIQUES FOR REMEDIAL INSTRUCTION OF LOW-ACHIEVING ADOLESCENTS IN READING AND MATHEMATICS, FINAL REPORT.
HOMME, LLOYD E.
A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT WAS CONDUCTED (1) TO DEVELOP AND TEST A SYSTEM OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS INTENDED TO PROVIDE REMEDIAL INSTRUCTION IN READING AND MATHEMATICS FOR LOW-ACHIEVING ADOLESCENTS (2) TO DETERMINE THE EFFECTS OF SUCH A SYSTEM ON RETENTION AND JOB PERFORMANCE OVER A 6-MONTH PERIOD, (3) TO REVISE THE SYSTEM AND PREPARE AN INSTRUCTOR'S UTILIZATION MANUAL FOR ITS USE, AND FIELD TEST IT UNDER CONDITIONS OF USE, BOTH WITHIN AND OUTSIDE THE CONVENTIONAL SCHOOL SETTING, AND (4) TO MAKE FINAL RECOMMENDATIONS CONCERNING THE DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL INTENDED FOR THE SCHOOL DROPOUT OR POTENTIAL DROPOUT, AND TO REVISE THE UTILIZATION MANUAL ON THE BASIS OF THE FIELD TESTING. THE PROJECT WAS CONDUCTED IN FOUR PHASES--(1) TEACHING, (2) RECORD-KEEPING, (3) FIELD TESTING, AND (4) DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS. RESULTS SUFFICIENTLY CONFIRMED PROJECT EXPECTATIONS, AND FURTHER APPLICATIONS WERE RECOMMENDED. THE SYSTEM APPEARED TO PROVIDE A POSITIVE ATMOSPHERE FOR LOW ACHIEVERS THAT IS NECESSARY TO PRODUCE MOTIVATION FOR THE PURSUIT OF ACADEMIC GOALS. RESEARCH WAS RECOMMENDED IN TWO DIRECTIONS--(1) FURTHER REFINEMENT OF ADMINISTRATIVE TECHNIQUES TO REDUCE UNFAVORABLE TEACHER AND STUDENT ATTITUDES, AND (2) FURTHER RESEARCH INTO COMPONENTS OF THE SYSTEM ITSELF. AN INSTRUCTOR'S UTILIZATION MANUAL IS INCLUDED IN THE REPORT. (HB)
