Relationship Among Receptive Language Skills, Type of Second Language Acquisition Program, and Reading Achievement.
Frauley, Ronald Franklin
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship among receptive language skills, type of second-language acquisition program, and reading skills among Italian speaking first grade students in the English schools of Montreal, Canada. Half of the fourteen teachers and their classes were randomly assigned to the Richards-Gibson structured language program and the other half were assigned to the Ginn Kit A unstructured language program for eight weeks. During the next eight weeks both groups followed the Ginn Readiness program and then the Faith and Freedom Reading Series for the rest of the school year. It was concluded that neither treatment was more influential than the other in developing receptive language, reading readiness skills, or reading skills. The teachers may have been an important variable influencing the programs, and it is possible that most of these pupils need longer than eight weeks to develop receptive language skills. (Author/DI)
