STUDIES IN THE USE OF COLOR.
HINDS, LILLIAN R.
STUDIES RELATED TO WORDS IN COLOR, THE MORPHOLOGICO-ALGEBRAIC APPROACH TO TEACHING READING, ARE DISCUSSED. ADULT CLASSES IN MILWAUKEE TAUGHT TO READ BY THIS METHOD ACHIEVED A MEAN GAIN OF .93 OF A YEAR IN 30 HOURS OF INSTRUCTION. IN EUCLID, OHIO, KINDERGARTENERS WHOSE PROGRESS WAS FOLLOWED THROUGH THE SECOND GRADE WERE TAUGHT BY WORDS IN COLOR AND MAINTAINED AN INITIAL READING GAIN. A STUDY IN CLEVELAND, OHIO, USING THE TRADITIONAL METHOD WITH A CONTROL GROUP AND THE WORDS IN COLOR METHOD WITH AN EXPERIMENTAL GROUP INDICATED SIGNIFICANT GAINS IN THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP. TEACHERS OF WORDS IN COLOR USE THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURES--(1) GIVING STUDENTS THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR EVALUATING THEIR OWN AND PEER PERFORMANCE, (2) WORKING WITH THE ERRING STUDENT AND, THROUGH INDUCTIVE QUESTIONING, LEADING HIM TO SEE RELATIONSHIPS, (3) USING AN ACTIVITY APPROACH, (4) PLACING EMPHASIS ON DIALECTS AND ON MANY DIFFERENT WAYS OF PRONOUNCING WORDS, AND (5) CONCENTRATING ON THE CODE OF THE LANGUAGE AND ON ITS RELATIONSHIP TO SOUNDS THE SPEAKERS MAKE. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (SEATTLE, MAY 4-6, 1967). (BK)
