PREVENTIVE MEASURES TO REDUCE READING RETARDATION IN THE PRIMARY GRADES.
REID, HALE C.; AND OTHERS
COOPERATIVE RESEARCH PROJECT-2698 WAS EXTENDED TO THE SECOND-GRADE LEVEL IN ORDER TO DEVELOP AND MEASURE THE EFFECTS OF INDIVIDUAL OR SMALL-GROUP INSTRUCTION FOR LOW-SCORING SECOND GRADERS IN READING, OF LESSONS ADAPTED TO THE NEEDS OF THE LOW GROUP, AND OF INSERVICE TRAINING OF TEACHERS. SECOND GRADERS WHO RECEIVED TOTAL METROPOLITAN ACHIEVEMENT RAW SCORES OF 65 OR BELOW AND WHO HAD A LORGE-THORNDIKE INTELLIGENCE SCORE OF 80 OR HIGHER PARTICIPATED. DATA WERE COLLECTED ON 203 PUPILS. THREE METHODS WERE COMPARED. THESE WERE (1) A BASAL APPROACH USING BOTH TEXT AND MANUAL (BR), (2) BASAL APPROACH USING TEXT, MANUAL, AND INSERVICE TRAINING (BRIT), AND (3) BASAL APPROACH USING SPECIAL LESSONS, BASAL TEXT, AND INSERVICE TRAINING (SBRIT). THE LATTER WAS SUBDIVIDED INTO TWO GROUPS. THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP RECEIVED ADDITIONAL TRAINING FROM SPECIAL READING TEACHERS WHILE THE CONTROL GROUP DID NOT. THERE WERE 16 DEPENDENT VARIABLES. SUBJECTIVE DATA WERE OBTAINED FROM TEACHERS. STATISTICAL ANALYSES INCLUDED F AND T TESTS. THE SBRIT-E GROUP HAD HIGHER READING ACHIEVEMENT SCORES THAN ANY OTHER GROUP. NO METHOD WAS SIGNIFICANTLY SUPERIOR TO SBRIT-C GROUP. THE ACHIEVEMENT OF LOW PUPILS WHOSE TEACHERS HAD INSERVICE TRAINING WAS NOT SUPERIOR TO THAT OF PUPILS WHOSE TEACHERS DID NOT. OTHER RESULTS, CONCLUSIONS, A BIBLIOGRAPHY, AND FIVE APPENDIXES ARE INCLUDED. (BK)
