A Study of Audiolingual Instruction Needed by Sixth-Grade Pupils Prior to Introducing Reading in First Year Spanish. Final Report.
Wingard, Harold B.
This cooperative research project, supported by the Office of Education Bureau of Research, attempts to answer questions on the effectiveness of reading instruction during a sixth grade beginning Spanish program. Major areas studied include: (1) the effects of reading instruction on listening, speaking, and reading skills, (2) the amounts of reading instruction necessary to effect a significant difference, and (3) the relative effectiveness of new and review reading content. Statistically inconclusive results limit the conclusions to a discussion of trends. The major recommendation growing out of this study is that further investigation in all three areas is greatly needed. Extensive appendixes are included. (AF)
