Quality Verification of the Regional Resource File for the Wisconsin Design for Reading Skill Development.
Johnson, Shelby L.
One component of The Wisconsin Design for Reading Skill Development--The Teacher's Resource File: Word Attack--was adapted to the needs of seven field test schools in the Southeastern United States. The resultant product was a 96-page Regional Resource File Supplement to the basic Teacher's Resource File: Word Attack. The file contains two parts: (1) a compendium which keys specific page number references of commercially prepared books, records, films, and other materials to 45 word attack skills and (2) descriptions of classroom activities teachers had found helpful in skill instruction. Since there was almost no agreement in the textbooks series used in the seven schools and those already keyed in the Resource File, extensive adaptation was made in a 3-day teacher workshop session in July. The following April, a questionnaire was sent to one-third of the teachers to receive feedback on the accuracy and usefulness of the file. Most teachers found the file to be useful, some inaccuracies were reported, and constant revision was generally accepted as necessary. The survey questionnaire is included in the appendix. (AW)
