The Effect of Special Oracy Instruction on the Oracy Skills of Primary Level Students. Final Report.
Melching, William H.; Whitmore, Paul G.
Based on the rationale that improved literacy skills in children can be most effectively obtained by first improving their oracy skills (auding and speaking), a special oracy instructional program was developed consisting of a workshop to train teachers in teaching oracy skills, sets of structured stimulus materials for use by teachers in teaching oracy skills, and an oracy test to assess the oracy capabilities of students. The program was administered during the 1974-75 school year to selected primary level teachers and students of the River Rouge, Michigan, School District. An oracy test was administered to project and control students before program implementation and as a posttest upon completion of the program. Oracy test results showed that the instructional program was an effective means for improving oracy skills of students. (Author/JM)
