Developing Four Marking Skills Associated with Following Directions.
Wilson, LaVisa
In order to ascertain the effectiveness of a short instructional program involving four marking skills required in following directions, a study was conducted with six kindergarten classes (130 children) taught by three teachers. The experimental and control groups in each class were given the pretest and posttest on the same days; otherwise, the control group participated in regular kindergarten work period experiences. The experimental group followed a two-week schedule which included the introduction and use of the four marking skills (circle around, X on, line under, and line from object to object). During the work period, several children at a time listened to and followed the directions of that day's lesson, which was prerecorded on tape and lasted approximately seven minutes. Analysis of data showed that in the pretest 40.29 percent of the experimental group children and 42.85 percent of the control group children had achieved 100 percent accuracy. Posttest results showed that 76.11 percent of the experimental group children and 61.90 percent of the control group children had achieved 100 percent accuracy. (JM)
