Conditions Prerequisite to the Learning of Reading and Writing, Paying Special Attention to the Spoken Language: An Investigation of School Beginners.
Hersvall, R. M.
One descriptive and one experimental section are presented on prerequisites for learning to read by school beginners. The descriptive part is intended to validate various hypotheses concerning the predictive value of different variables related to reading and spelling ability. By an analysis of multiple regression it is shown that the best prediction of the ability after one year is given by the spoken language, together with tests of general school readiness and tests of reading and writing readiness. In the experiment, the effect of speech training on reading and spelling ability after the first year of school was studied. Taking into consideration the initial level of knowledge, the experimental group showed somewhat greater gains in reading and writing ability than did the matched control group. (Author/LH)
