How to Change the Process of Teaching Basic Reading Skills in Secondary Schools. Phase II and Phase III. Final Report.
Stallings, Jane; And Others
The second of three related reports, this volume includes the final reports for the second and third phases of a study designed to identify teaching processes that are efficient in helping secondary school students learn to read. The report of the second phase describes an experiment in which a group of teachers was trained to use specific organization and management techniques in classes where they were attempting to help students gain reading skills. The third phase report compares the results of a treatment group of teachers trained by second phase teachers with those trained by Stanford Research Institute staff and with a control group that received only the training materials. Following an introduction to the background of the study, the first nine chapters of the report describe the second phase design, sample, instruments, and data collection, as well as the individual workshops and their effects on teacher behavior and student achievement. The next three chapters discuss the background of the third phase of the study, and its design and findings. Appendixes include the instruments from the study, characteristics of the students tested for reading skills, observation variables, data from the first phase of the study, and observation variables of all three phases.
