The Effectiveness of the Sound Reading Program with the Culturally Disadvantaged.
Briggs, Barbara Carter
The purpose of this study was to determine the relative effectiveness of a programed linguistically-based reading approach with an eclectic approach when used with disadvantaged children in grades one and two in a rural county of northern Florida. The children, 137 first and second grade students, were stratified according to sex and race and randomly assigned to a control or experimental group. The experimental subjects worked with the Sound Reading Program for one hour each school day over a three-month period. The control group continued in the regular reading program. There was no evidence found to indicate that the treatment was effective for grade one, but the treatment was found to be effective for grade two in both comprehension and word recognition.
