Development and Testing of Video Tapes for Teacher Education in the Teaching of Reading Utilizing a Concentrated Phonetic and Modified Linguistic Structure. Final Report.
Wingo, Charles E.; And Others
A study was devised to determine which of two instructional methods (conventional instruction or videotape presentations of structured material in addition to classroom instruction, discussion, and demonstration) would be more helpful in teaching prospective teachers how to teach work recognition skills to children. The videotaped materials employed a sequence of presentation of the various speech sounds in the order of their frequency in English; applications of modified linguistics for word identification were emphasized; and motivational stories as well as reinforcement and maintenance activities were included. Two classes of students enrolled in an education course participated in each condition in a pretest-posttest design. Results of analyses showed the videotape approach to be significantly superior to the conventional teaching method. Appended are the pretest and posttest items, test score data, and scripts for 33 videotapes. (Author/SH)
