A REACTION TO SISTER MARY EDWARD DOLAN'S LINGUISTICS IN TEACHING READING.
BARNHART, CLARENCE L.
A REACTION TO SISTER MARY EDWARD DOLAN'S ARTICLE, "EFFECTS OF A MODIFIED LINGUISTICS AND WORD RECOGNITION PROGRAM ON FOURTH-GRADE READING ACHIEVEMENT," WHICH APPEARED IN THE "READING RESEARCH QUARTERLY" AND WHICH DESCRIBES THE RESULTS OF A 3-YEAR EXPERIMENT IN TEACHING READING WITH A BASAL SYSTEM TO A CONTROL GROUP OF 10 CLASSROOMS AND TEACHING READING WITH A MODIFIED LINGUISTIC SYSTEM TO 10 CLASSROOMS IS PRESENTED. A LINGUISTIC SYSTEM IS DEFINED, AND THE EXTENT TO WHICH IT IS MODIFIED IN SISTER DOLAN'S EXPERIMENT IS EXPLAINED BY THE APPLICATION OF THESE TWO CRITERIA OF A LINGUISTIC SYSTEM--THE CONTROL OF SPELLING PATTERNS AND THE PRESENTATION OF SYMBOL-SOUND CORRELATIONS IN WORDS. IT IS POINTED OUT THAT THE MODIFIED LINGUISTIC EXPERIMENT IN TEACHING READING CARRIED OUT IN DETROIT DID NOT MEET EITHER CRITERION. FURTHER CRITICAL ANALYSIS IS MADE, AND IT IS CONCLUDED THAT THE EXPERIMENT OF SISTER DOLAN PROVIDES A BASIS UPON WHICH FURTHER EXPERIMENTATION CAN BE MADE. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE "READING RESEARCH QUARTERLY," VOLUME 2, NUMBER 3, SPRING 1967. (BK)
