Teams-Games-Tournament (TGT) Effects on Reading Skills in the Elementary Grades. Report No. 200.
DeVries, David L.; And Others
This study tested the effectiveness of Teams-Games-Tournament (TGT) for teaching basic reading skills. TGT is a classroom management technique which uses cooperative student teams, instructional games, and interteam tournaments in a particular combination. Fifty-three third-grade students were randomly assigned to either a TGT or a control condition. Both treatment groups were exposed to a five-week, sight-reading curriculum unit which focused on two objectives: development of vocabulary and verbal analogy skills. The results indicated a positive TGT effect on growth for vocabulary and verbal analogy skills. (Author)
