Learning Through Listening: Implications for Reading.
Van Valkenburg, John
This study was undertaken to explore the "listening-sociocultural" area as well as to provide more information about the interrelationships between listening and reading at different grade levels. The findings indicated that a series of listening lessons based on Russell and Russell's "Listening Aids Through the Grades" and the Educational Developmental Laboratories' Listen and Think Program were effective in increasing listening and reading comprehension. It was also noted that the students classified as "low socio-economic status" gained more from the listening experiences than did the "high socio-economic status" students, suggesting that listening lessons may be used successfully to compensate for the lack of experiential breadth in culturally deprived children.
