A Descriptive Analysis of Beginning Reading Combining Language Experiences, Children's Story Writing and Linguistic Principles Tested after the Second Year and the Third Year.
Peaster, Minnie Young
The purpose of this study was to describe a composite method of teaching first grade reading, based on children's own language and interests and utilizing basic principles sequentially developed in myriad speaking and writing activities. These activities were designed to afford opportunities for the exposure of the child to teacher-prepared, linguistically organized materials promoting discovery of the sound-symbol correspondences as they were needed in writing and in decoding written material; and to aid the learner in the formulation of rules as a ready reference in the more advanced language arts activities. The aim was to guide 20 randomly selected subjects into worthwhile reading activities at the individual pace of each child. Results from tests administered after 155 days of instruction were tabulated, charted, and studied. Achievement in spelling and reading were studied according to sex and measured mental ability. Case studies demonstrated the growth and progress of each child, as well as provided insight into the relationship between preschool activities, attitudes of children and parents, and demonstrated ability in reading and writing. All 20 subjects and parents were satisfied with the progress made. Conclusions and implications are given. (Author/DB)
