The Effect of Taped Listening Lessons on the Achievement of First Grade Readers.
Morrow, Elmer Charles
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effect of taped listening lessons on the achievement of first grade readers. Five classes of first grade children were randomly chosen for treatment one (T1) and five for treatment two (T2). T1 subjects studied reading by use of the Ginn Basal Reading program for skills-building, the Phonovisual Method for supplementary phonics training, and a planned, taped listening lesson program. T2 subjects studied reading by the use of the Ginn Basal Reading program for skills-building, the Phonovisual Method for supplementary phonics training, and free reading and writing activities. Both T1 and T2 classes scheduled the same amount of reading time per day. The study was conducted for one school year. The findings indicated that the adjusted mean scores of T1 subjects were significantly higher than those of T2 subjects on all reading, listening, and overall achievement tests used as posttests. The investigator concluded that overall achievement scores of first grade pupils can be strengthened by providing pupils with taped listening lessons along with their basic skills program in reading instruction.
