THE USE OF ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS AS A STIMULUS FOR IMPROVED READING.
STANCHFIELD, JO M.
A VARIETY OF READING MATERIALS AND METHODS WERE DEVELOPED TO DETERMINE THEIR EFFECT ON THE READING ACHIEVEMENT OF FIRST GRADERS. MATERIALS DEVELOPED INCLUDED READING READINESS MANUALS, PRIMER TEXTS AND MANUALS, AND LISTENING TAPES. THE FIRST-GRADE PUPILS IN 10 LOS ANGELES SCHOOLS SERVED AS SUBJECTS. THEY WERE MATCHED WITH A CONTROL GROUP ON INTELLIGENCE, HOME BACKGROUND, AND ETHNIC ORIGIN. A DIVIDED-DAY STRUCTURE WAS USED TO TEACH READING. THE HARSCH AND SOEBERG SURVEY TEST OF PRIMARY READING DEVELOPMENT WAS USED AS A POST TEST. THE DATA WERE ANALYZED BY A THREE-WAY ANALYSIS OF COVARIANCE. THE MAIN EFFECTS WERE SEX, TREATMENT GROUP, AND ETHNIC ORIGIN. GIRLS SCORED HIGHER THAN BOYS. THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP SCORED HIGHER THAN THE CONTROL GROUP. NEGRO AND CAUCASIAN STUDENTS SCORED HIGHER THAN THE MEXICAN-AMERICAN GROUP. THE LATTER WAS MORE HOMOGENEOUS AS REFLECTED IN THE SMALL STANDARD DEVIATION. FURTHER RESULTS AND TABLES ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL READING CONFERENCE (ST. PETERSBURG, DECEMBER 1-3, 1966). (BK)
