COMPARING AN EXPERIMENTAL AND A CONVENTIONAL METHOD OF TEACHING LINGUISTIC SKILLS.
GIESE, DAVID L.; STOCKDALE, WILLIAM A.
TO DETERMINE THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF PROGRAMED AND CONVENTIONAL WORKBOOK METHODS OF TEACHING GRAMMAR, SENTENCE STRUCTURE, PUNCTUATION, AND CAPITALIZATION, PRE- AND POST-TEST SCORES IN FOUR REMEDIAL ENGLISH SECTIONS WERE COMPARED. TWO TEACHERS PARTICIPATED IN THE EXPERIMENT, WITH EACH CONDUCTING A WORKBOOK SECTION AND A PROGRAMED SECTION. NO GAINS OCCURRED IN SPELLING AND WORD USAGE (TWO AREAS NOT COVERED IN THE INSTRUCTION), NOR WERE THERE GAINS IN GRAMMATICAL USAGE (STRUCTURE WAS COVERED IN THE INSTRUCTION). BOTH INSTRUCTION METHODS INCREASED SCORES IN SENTENCE STRUCTURE, PUNCTUATION, AND CAPITALIZATION, ALTHOUGH DIFFERENCES AMONG THE TREATMENT GROUPS WERE NOT SIGNIFICANT. CONCLUDING THAT THE REMEDIAL ENGLISH COURSE COULD BE TAUGHT AS EFFECTIVELY BY THE PROGRAMED AS BY THE CONVENTIONAL METHOD, THE EXPERIMENTERS RECOMMENDED THAT PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION BE USED IN ALL SUCH CLASSES. THIS DOCUMENT IS VOLUME 2, NUMBER 3 OF "THE GENERAL COLLEGE STUDIES," 1965-66. (WO)
