INITIAL TEACHING ALPHABET (I.T.A.) FOR INSTRUCTION OF READING DISABILITY CASES.
LEWIS, EDWARD R.
BRITISH EXPERIMENTAL USAGE OF INITIAL TEACHING ALPHABET (ITA) MATERIALS AND PROCEDURES FOR INSTRUCTION OF READING DISABILITY CASES WAS STUDIED TO DETERMINE IF ITA METHODS AND MATERIALS COULD BE SIMILARLY USED IN A SAN JOSE READING CLINIC. THE INVESTIGATOR MADE OBSERVATIONS IN ENGLAND OF QUALITY, FORMAT, CONCEPTS, AND USE OF LANGUAGE IN THE ITA MATERIAL. FINDINGS WERE DISCUSSED UNDER NINE CATEGORIES--(1) ITA MATERIALS, (2) PUPIL SELECTION FOR ITA REMEDIAL WORK, (3) REMEDIAL TECHNIQUES WITH ITA, (4) INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP METHODS FOR USE WITH ITA, (5) PHONETIC OR WHOLE WORD APPROACHES, (6) DIAGNOSIS IN ITA REMEDIATION, (7) THE USE OF SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIALS, (8) EXTENT OF TEACHER TRAINING, AND (9) ITA AND THE READING CLINIC. GENERALLY ITA HAS HAD BENEFICIAL EFFECTS WITH CHILDREN WHEN A HISTORY OF READING FAILURE HAD EXISTED. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT ITA MATERIALS AVAILABLE IN ENGLAND COULD BE USED IN THE UNITED STATES WITH MINOR MODIFICATIONS IN ISOLATED BOOKS. HOWEVER, ADDITIONAL MATERIALS WHICH ARE NOT YET AVAILABLE IN ENGLAND INCLUDE HIGH INTEREST, TRANSITIONAL, SKILL BUILDING, AND SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIALS, AS WELL AS ITA READING MANUALS. (JM)
