Extra Stimulation in Intermediate Grade Reading.
Mason, George E.
Three types of extra stimulation in reading are discussed: extra teacher time devoted to teaching reading, extra student time devoted to practice in reading, and extra motivation and reinforcement leading to greater amounts of student reading outside the school. Problems are created (1) when teaching time spent on reading is increased in the proportion of time devoted to any one student's reading or (2) when student time devoted to independent reading in the classroom is increased at the expense of teacher instruction in reading. The most promising alternative noted is that of increasing student time spent in reading outside of school. One of the best procedures for accomplishing this, the study concludes, is contingency management in which outside reading is heavily reinforced. References are included. (RT)
