Research Generalizations on Reception Skills.
Linder, Ronald; Fillmer, Harry T.
Because learning to read is based on the ability to sift and organize sensory input, it is important for teachers and curriculum planners to know of the sorts of language experiences which develop reception and, subsequently, reading skills. Research on the effects of visual and auditory presentation of information and on early sensory experience indicates that (1) children of different cultural and social backgrounds show different preferences for auditory and visual presentation, (2) preference for visual and auditory presentation changes with maturational level, (3) the appropriate modality of presentation is determined by the type, complexity, and extensiveness of the information to be conveyed, (4) types of sensory modalities exist in a hierarchy moving from concrete meaning to abstract meaning, (5) feedback stimulates learning, (6) auditory deficits are more common than visual deficits, and (7) children of low socioeconomic levels have deficits in all language development. Suggestions for applying this research to classroom techniques and approaches are made. References are included. (AL)
