An Analysis of Miscues in the Oral Reading of Canadian Indian Children.
Irwin, Joan M.
The frequency of miscues, repetitions of miscues, and the correction of miscues at the phoneme-grapheme, phoneme-morpheme, and the grammatical levels of linguistic structure were considered in a study conducted in Southern Alberta. A comparison of the miscues of 75 Indian students at three different grade levels--2, 4, and 6--was made. Oral readings of science materials were taped and analyzed. The types and frequencies of errors peculiar to the different grade levels are discussed in this paper, and the value of auditory discrimination training, the use of context clues, and the necessity of understanding the grammatical components of English are emphasized. References are included. (RT)
