EXPERIMENTS IN KINDERGARTEN READING.
BAKER, EVA L.; AND OTHERS
FOUR PAPERS GIVEN AT THE READING SYMPOSIUM OF THE 1968 AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION PRESENT DISCUSSIONS OF THE SOUTHWEST REGIONAL LABORATORY (SWRL) READING PROGRAM. THE FIRST PAPER DESCRIBES OBJECTIVES, CLASSROOM MATERIALS, AND PROCEDURES. OBJECTIVES FOR SIGHT-RECOGNITION, WORD-ATTACK SKILLS, AND COMPREHENSION SKILLS ARE EXPRESSED IN EXPECTED STUDENT BEHAVIORS. THE MATERIALS CONSIST OF 150 LESSONS FOR A 30-WEEK KINDERGARTEN INSTRUCTIONAL PERIOD OF 20-MINUTES DAILY, ACCOMPANIED BY PHONICS WORKBOOKS, COMPREHENSION BOOKLETS, PRACTICE EXERCISES, AND 60 READING PAPERBACKS. THE TEACHERS FOLLOW THE LESSONS 4 DAYS A WEEK AND HAVE FREE CHOICE OF INSTRUCTION 1 DAY A WEEK. FACTORS AFFECTING THE SUCCESS OF THE PROGRAM SUCH AS PUBLIC APPROVAL AND PUPIL PERFORMANCE ARE DISCUSSED IN A SECOND PAPER. THE MATERIALS AND PROCEDURES USED, THE PROGRAM'S RATIONALE, THE AMOUNT OF INSTRUCTION AND PRACTICE, AND THE TYPE OF PRACTICE USED ARE CONSIDERED. A THIRD PAPER PRESENTS A BEGINNING READING PROGRAM FOR SPANISH- SPEKAING CHILDREN WHICH CONTAINS 21 10-MINUTE TAPE-RECORDED AND PROGRAMED LESSONS FOR TEACHING THE OBJECTIVES OF THE FIRST 7 WEEKS OF THE SWRL READING PROGRAM. THE FOURTH PAPER DESCRIBES USE OF THE THREE-FORM CRITERION-REFERENCED INDIVIDUAL TEST DEVELOPED TO EVALUATE PUPIL PERFORMANCE AS A CRITERION OF THE SWRL READING PROGRAM'S EFFECTIVENESS.
