Interest and Evaluative Meaning as Factors in the Acquisition of a Sight Vocabulary.
Holman, Glenn C., Jr.
Kindergarten Ss were assigned to three treatments. Group I learned words that were self-selected; Group II learned words selected by children in Group I, and Group III learned words common to the vocabulary of young children. Group I Ss scored significantly higher than the control group Ss, supporting the Ashton-Warner hypothesis. Group I ratings of evaluative meaning were in the direction predicted, but did not reach significance. (Author)
