Progress for Middle-Graders Among the Educationally Disadvantaged Through Photography.
Pridgen, Ennie M.; And Others
The purpose of the study was to assess the feasability of teaching fifth graders to read through instruction in photography and the use of such student-produced materials as pictures, books, magazines, and charts. The 60 subjects, all of whom were experiencing severe reading disability, were divided into two classes of 30 students each. Both classes were given Dolch's 220 Basic Word Recognition Inventory, and then equivalent mean scores were obtained. The students were split into control and experimental groups, the control group receiving conventional remedial instruction and the experimental group using the photography approach. After 4 weeks, the Dolch test was readministered. Results showed that the mean gain score was significantly higher for the experimental group. References are included. (NH)
