Novel Word Decoding in Kindergarteners as a Function of Decoding Strategy and Segmentation-Blending Training Form.
Koehler, John, Jr.
Group training on segmentation-blending training forms (SB) in conjunction with strategies for decoding novel words (WD) was assessed in kindergarteners. Neither the WD or SB factor was found to significantly affect novel word decoding performance, although the results indicated that the sounding out SB form led to considerable success in word decoding where the WD strategy required treating C, VC and CC, VC as elements in CVC and CCVC word forms. There was a significant tendency to decode the single letter more than multiple letter elements of the WD strategies. Because of limitations on subject sampling and training, these findings were considered mainly as providing hypotheses for further research work on word attack skills. (Author)
