APPLYING AUDIO-LINGUAL (ORAL) TECHNOLOGY TO BEGINNING READING.
KING, EVA; KING, PAUL
THE ROLE OF EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY IN LANGUAGE COMMUNICATION FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IS DISCUSSED. IT IS KNOWN THAT COMMUNICATION SKILLS DEVELOP IN SEQUENCE, THAT THERE IS A GAP BETWEEN A 6-YEAR- OLD'S LISTENING AND READING SKILLS, AND THAT READING IS A MULTISENSORY SKILLS. IN ADDITION, THERE ARE STRIKING SIMILARITIES IN MASTERING ORAL LANGUAGE AND BEGINNING READING, AND THERE MUST BE ONE-AT-A-TIME AUDIOLINGUAL PERFORMANCES. IN ONE RESEARCH EXPERIMENT, AUDIOLINGUAL PERFORMANCE WAS DEALT WITH BY TAPE RECORDERS, HEADPHONES, AND CARTRIDGE TAPES. BY THIS METHOD, ATTENTION SPAN INCREASED, INTENSIVE CONCENTRATION INCREASED, AND THE TECHNICAL READINESS OF THE CHILDREN OFTEN SURPASSED THAT OF THEIR TEACHERS. A PILOT PROJECT ON AUDIOLINGUAL TECHNOLOGY AND BEGINNING READING WAS BEGUN IN THE VIRGIN ISLANDS. TEACHERS AND STUDENTS BENEFIT FROM SUCH A PROGRAM. THIS PAPER WAS BASED ON AN ILLUSTRATED LECTURE AT THE SEATTLE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE AND IS A REPRINT FROM "TESOL QUARTERLY," MARCH 1968. (BK)
