The Utility of Phonic Generalizations in the First Grade [and in Grade Two] as Taught by Four Leading Basal Readers.
Zook, Kizzie Fay
The three main purposes for this study were (1) to determine what phonic generalizations were being taught in grade 1 in four of the leading basal reading series; (2) to determine the degree of utility of each generalization within the framework of the grade in which it was presented, after the initial presentation; and (3) to set up a comparative generalization table for grades 1 and 2 of these particular readers. The study was limited to phonic generalizations, four basal reader series, grade levels 1 and 2 of each series, and the exclusion of beginning consonants. Used in the study were the teachers' manuals and the workbooks for the preprimers, primers, first readers, and the two levels of the second grade reader published by Houghton-Mifflin; Scott, Foresman and Company; Macmillan; and Harper and Row. The results were given in the form of lists of generalizations and tables. A critical review of the research on phonics generalizations and references is included. (Author/NH)
