The Expansion of Reading Experience in Blocks 1 and 2 of the SWRL Reading Program.
Language features which occur for the first time ("new" words and structures) in each story of Blocks 1 and 2 of the Southwest Regional Laboratory (SWRL) Reading Program are identified and discussed. The features were drawn from those defined and presented in Fiege-Kollmann's (1972) analysis of Blocks 1 and 2 stories. The new words and structures in each story are compared and contrasted with closely related words and structures which occurred in prior stories. Potential sources of difficulty in reading comprehension are pointed out. Structural contexts for the introduction of a new lexicon in prestory instruction are recommended. (Author)
