The Effect of Using a Listening Skills Curriculum on Reading Achievement of Third Grade Students.
Dewar, Douglas Charles
This study was conducted to determine what effect instruction in listening skills would have on reading achievement and listening comprehension of third grade students. "A Skills Oriented Curriculum to Teach Listening," by Metfessel and Hammond, was used to instruct the students, who were then tested to determine whether it had had an effect. Three schools were selected for the study, with two classes of third graders in each as the population sample. There were 73 students in the three experimental groups and 78 students in the three control groups. Both experimental and control groups were given the regular curriculum of the district, but the experimental groups were also given the listening curriculum. The conclusions were that "A Skills Oriented Curriculum in Listening" was an effective means of instructing the students in this study of listening skills. There was a positive effect on the scores the students achieved on reading achievement and listening skills tests. The program was found particularly effective with middle and lower class students.
