A "TALKING BOOK" SYSTEM OF TEACHING BEGINNING READING. FINAL REPORT.
STRANDBERG, JOEL E.; AND OTHERS
TWO FEASIBILITY STUDIES WERE CONDUCTED TO OBTAIN EVIDENCE OF THE VALUE OF INSTRUCTING CHILDREN WITH THE TALKING BOOK SYSTEM. SUBJECTS WERE TWO GROUPS OF CHILDREN RANGING IN AGE FROM 5-0 TO 6-1 YEARS. THE CHILDREN MANIPULATED THE EQUIPMENT AND DIRECTED THE MAGNETIC READER IN ORDER TO LEARN TO READ SIX SIGHT WORDS AND THE TWO-WORD SENTENCES CONTAINING THESE WORDS. PRETESTS AND POST-TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED TO MEASURE LEARNING DURING A FIVE- SESSION TRAINING PERIOD. RESULTS INDICATED THAT THE SYSTEM WAS EFFECTIVE FOR CAPABLE PUPILS, BUT WAS UNSATISFACTORY FOR SLOWER CHILDREN. THE NEED FOR REVISION OF THE SIMPLE PAIRED-ASSOCIATE SEQUENCE AND A DIFFERENT SELECTION OF WORDS WAS EVIDENT. EXAMPLES OF THE TESTS AND LESSONS USED ARE INCLUDED IN THE APPENDIXES. REFERENCES ARE LISTED. (MC)
