The Effects of a Program of Learning Games upon Selected Academic Abilities in Children with Learning Difficulties.
Cratty, Bryant J.; Martin, Sister Margaret Mary
Designed to evaluate the effectiveness of active learning games in the enhancement of selected academic operations among Negro and Mexican-American children, the investigation involved 127 children (mean IQ 85, in grades 1 through 4) from the inner city in Los Angeles who were identified as low achievers. The children were divided into four groups receiving the following treatment in addition to their regular curriculum: a supplementary program of physical education, special small group tutoring within the classroom, sequenced learning games, and no additional treatment. At the end of the 18-week project, results indicated that the children in the Learning Games Group showed significantly greater alphabet learning, self control, serial memory, and motor ability when compared with all three other groups. No signficiant sex differences or changes in measurable IQ were revealed. (RD)
