Clinton Pilot Cassette Center Project Director's Report and Evaluation Addendum 1969-1970.
Flugaur, George J.; Schouweiler, Mary P.
The goal of the cassette pilot center at Clinton Elementary School, Minneapolis, Minn., is to develop a tape library that will improve instruction for children who learn better by simultaneous listening and viewing than by reading. To assess effects of the cassette program, two classes at Clinton which received considerable assistance with cassettes were compared with two classes at a nearby school (also Title I) which did not use cassettes. Groups were compared on reading vocabulary and spelling following eight weeks of instruction. Although neither group gained in spelling, the Clinton group made a significant gain in reading vocabulary. Over 90% of the Clinton children gained in vocabulary during the period--which was interrupted by a two-week teacher strike--while only 39% of the control group did.
