EFFECTIVENESS OF INSTRUCTIONAL TAPES FOR CHANGING REGIONAL SPEECH PATTERNS.
GOLDEN, RUTH I.
AN AUDIOLINGUAL LABORATORY TECHNIQUE FOR IMPROVING RURAL SPEECH PATTERNS OF DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS WAS EVALUATED. THE SAMPLES CONSISTED OF 72 HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WHO WERE DIVIDED EQUALLY AMONG EXPERIMENTAL AND CONTROL GROUPS. A SERIES OF LESSONS ON ENGLISH USAGE FOR LISTENING AND REPETITION WERE ADMINISTERED TO THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP. THESE LESSONS WERE RECORDED ON TAPE AND TRANSMITTED BY EARPHONES TO THE 10TH-GRADERS IN THE GROUP. PRE- AND POST-TESTS AND AN ATTITUDE SURVEY WERE ADMINISTERED. TAPE TEACHING WAS SUCCESSFUL IN HELPING STUDENTS TO IMPROVE THEIR SPEECH PATTERNS. FURTHER STUDIES WERE SUGGESTED TO DETERMINE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SPEECH INADEQUACIES AND POOR ACHIEVEMENT IN OTHER FIELDS. (RS)
