A Study of the Relationship between Basal Illustrations and Contextual Meaning.
Cardone, Janine Lord
A study determined the relationship between basal illustrations and contextual meaning. Five basals were analyzed to determine the percentage of illustration miscues appearing in each story. The basals chosen were from Silver Burdett and Ginn, Houghton Mifflin, Scott Foresman, Holt Rinehart and Winston, and D.C. Heath and Company. Results indicated that D.C. Heath and Company and Silver Burdett and Ginn had the highest percentage of pictorial miscues. Findings suggest that illustrations found in first-grade basals do not always relate to context. (Two tables of data and descriptions of basals with noted miscues are included. (Contains 29 references.) (Author/RS)
