The Use of an Anecdotal Style of Content Presentation as a Motivational and Instructional Device for Seventh Grade Under-Achievers in Mathematics.
Nibbelink, William Henry
A narrative of about 100 pages and an accompanying workbook which attempted to imbed mathematics content in fiction were used with eight classes of seventh grade underachievers. Pretests and posttests covering open sentences, computations, and algorithms were given, along with reading vocabulary and reading comprehension tests. Results showed that the experimental program was effective in raising achievement levels in mathematics, that the program was not less effective than the traditional program relative to any of the mathematics sub-tests, and that it was more effective relative to the algorithms sub-test.
