Progress Report on the Oral Language Program.
Reeback, Robert T.; Osterreich, Helgi
The Oral Language Program is a set of instructional materials in English as a second language for children aged five to seven. It is also an instructional system; in addition to 150 lessons for the children, there are pupil assessment devices, teacher training procedures and materials, program evaluation procedures, and installation and monitoring procedures. This report summarizes the progress of the Oral Language Program through the various stages of development. It concentrates on the instructional and assessment components for pupils and teacher training, and reports on program evaluation. Installation procedures are not covered. The three major sections of the report are a comparison between the Oral Language Program and its antecedent, a detailed review of the stages of developmental work on the program since 1967, and a report of the most recently completed field trials of the program, i.e., those conducted in the 1969-70 school year.
