The Acceleration of Learning Rate Implemented in a Multilevel Classroom.
Dusablon, Beth; Wade, Martha
Two 8-year-old boys, who read 1.7 and 1.5 years below grade level respectively, participated in a program to accelerate their learning rates. Ss' reading levels were incorporated into a 6-year minimum objectives graphing system, and their progress was recorded every 18 days. The program involved daily work from the Ginn 100 Readers, with evaluation based on oral reading and comprehension of stories. One boy also received daily practice with word lists from the stories printed on flashcards. At the end of 108 days reading learning rates had accelerated to the point that achievement at grade level was predicted for both boys condensing 3 years of work into 1 year and 3 months for one boy and 2 years and 4 months of work into 9 months for the second boy.
