Oral, Choral or Silent Reading and Their Effect on Reading Comprehension.
A study examined whether oral, silent, or choral reading would affect reading comprehension. Subjects were 22 heterogeneously grouped third grade students. Two groups of 11 subjects were assigned to each of the following three samples during a three week period: (1) oral reading; (2) silent reading; and (3) choral reading. To analyze results, percentages were calculated and a comparison was made indicating which method of reading would enhance comprehension. Results indicated that there was no statistically significant difference among the three methods' effect on reading comprehension. (Four tables of data are included and 30 references are attached.)
