Effects of an Individualized Reading Program and Communication Skills Through Authorship on the Language and Reading Experience of Reluctant Readers at the Secondary Level.
Hoyt, James Robert
The purpose of this study was to provide information relative to effects of the inclusion of an individualized reading program complemented by Communication Skills through Authorship (CSTA), developed at the University of Idaho, on the language and reading experience of reluctant readers at the secondary level. Students in the 9th grade, identified as reluctant readers by junior high school teachers, were assigned randomly to one of four classes of CSTA on entering the 10th grade. It was concluded from the results of the study that the individualized reading program complemented by CSTA was effective in improving achievement in word meaning and paragraph meaning for reluctant readers at the secondary level. Recommendations related to CSTA were made in terms of facilities, counseling, student behaviors and attitudes, and teaching procedures. (Author/RB)
