The Effects of a Summer Communication Skills Program Upon Selected Language Arts Skills and Dimensions of the Self Concept of Disadvantaged Negro Pupils.
Agnew, Ann T.
The purpose of this study was to determine whether or not differences in mean gains for reading and listening achievement, and components of the self concept were observable between pupils who participated in a 6-week summer language arts program and similar children who did not. The sample consisted of 80 disadvantaged Negro second graders and 70 disadvantaged Negro fifth graders. Half of the students attended the program and the others were controls. Treatment groups consisted of experimental and control pupils while factors of sex, grade, and entry level were concomitant variables. Major conclusions were that there was no evidence that pupils who participated in the summer program made significant gains in reading, listening achievement, or in self concept. (Author/PS)
