Word Attack Skills and Perception--A Programmed Approach.
Mounger, Marion
An instructional package was developed to help junior college students weak in word attack skills related to phonics and the ability to discriminate by the most efficient use of the auditory, visual, and analytical faculties. The programed package was designed to permit the student independence and privacy and to introduce a rapid and emotionally satisfying process for developing the needed skills. Habits and misconceptions regarding spelling and pronunciation observed in the behavior of the students were identified, together with other emotional dilemmas. Through working with individuals, 20 generalizations and skills which the students needed for more efficient word attack were selected. The objectives to be achieved were presented in the following order: accented syllable, unaccented syllable, syllabication, vowel diagraphs and dipthongs, consonants and consonant blends, flexibility, and the dictionary. A pretest and post-test for each of the objectives was developed. It was recommended that the package be used with other informal and personal aids and especially with wide and continuous reading.
