The Formula Phonics Video-Tape Reading Program.
Vail, Edward O.
Materials and procedures for teaching both children and adults to read by a phonic method are described and specimen programs are outlined. Two books, Formula Phonics and Formula Phonics Reading Book, and a series of 12 30-minute tapes comprise the described materials. From these the learners go directly to anthologies or any other materials which interest them. Programing, defined as a process of inputting into pupils the data they will later be called upon to use in the decoding phase of the reading process, is viewed as basic to the program and is done in the Reading Book and with the help of the tapes. The tapes also insure that both teachers and pupils will learn to make the letter sounds correctly. Since it is recommended that many people be involved in teaching reading by this method, parents, tutors, educational aides, school volunteers, and other students are invited to see the tapes along with the ones who are being instructed. The following specimens of programs are described: (1) elementary with emphasis on homogeneous grouping for reading, (2) secondary, (3) adult literacy, (4) rural-migrant, (5) college, and (6) penal institutions. References are included. (DH)
