An Investigation of Growth in Critical Reading-Listening Ability in Grades Two and Three.
Johnson, Gwen Parrott
This descriptive study was conducted to evaluate the need for critical reading-listening instruction in the second and third grades. The subjects were 203 second and third graders from two northwest Florida elementary schools. The subjects were tested in groups of 10 to 15 students with critical listening ability being evaluated by using a cassette delivery of the test as students read the printed copy. An analysis of variance on the scale total was used to analyze the results. The variables involved were grade, sex, and scores on the critical reading-listening test. The results indicated that there was a significant difference in mean scores of students in the second and third grades, with the third grade mean being higher. No difference in critical reading-listening ability of boys and girls within grades was found. Results indicate that second and third grade students do have the ability to read and listen critically and that instruction should provide for the development of this ability. (Author/WR)
