Instructional Practices and Easy-To-Change Surrounding Conditions Variables In Effective Primary Reading Programs.
Kendall, Janet Ross; Hood, Joyce
Dyer's (1970) model was utilized to examine instructional practices and easy-to-change surrounding conditions variables related to effective primary grade reading programs. Hard-to-change surrounding conditions variables were used in regression analyses as predictors of fourth grade reading achievement in 844 (75%) of the Iowa elementary schools; 98 schools with more effective and less effective primary reading programs were selected. Comparisons between schools revealed that in more effective schools, principals and teachers were more experienced, a public library was more available, and fewer children received their major reading instruction from the special reading teacher.
