Content and Sequence for Block I of the 1970 Reading Program.
Berdiansky, Betty; Stanton, George
Previous work has led to identification of an extensive lexicon on which the Southwest Regional Laboratory (SWRL) 1970 primary-grade reading program will be based, as well as to the development of a considerable number of sound-symbol correspondence rules (see Berdiansky, Cronnell, and Koehler, 1969). The present document describes the initial steps taken in the development of a complete sequencing of these rules. This sequencing procedure is being based, in general, on the Desberg and Cronnell (1969) analysis of the characteristics of the rules. For the first block of this sequence, the rules were ordered primarily on the basis of their combined productivity, i.e., the number of words from the given lexicon which can be generated by the given combination of rules. The sequencing of rules and the listing of resultant usable words is covered in this report for the first block of rules only. Within- and across-block sequencing has not yet been entirely completed.
