An Exploratory Study to Adapt the Language Experience Approach to Remedial Seventh and Tenth Grade, Mexican-American Students.
Calvert, John David
The purpose of this exploration was to develop an operational guide to assist secondary teachers in adapting language experience techniques in their classrooms. After language experience techniques were reviewed and identified, they were compiled into a guide which was used in two classrooms. Inservice training of teachers evolved from this guide and was provided in three phases. Justification of language experience instruction was attempted through pre- and post-measurement of reading study skills, writing, and self-concept of sampled seventh and tenth grade Mexican-American and Anglo students classified as remedial readers. Results showed that language experience and its related activities could be considered helpful in enhancing writing achievement of Mexican-American students, and, in general, the reading and study skills of both Mexican-American and Anglo students.
