A Study of the Relationship of Miscues to the Mode of Formal Reading Instruction Received by Selected Second Graders.
Dank, Marion Edelson
Second-grade pupils using the Ginn "Reading 360" or the McGraw-Hill "Programmed Reading" were compared in their reading and retelling of the story "King Alfred and the Cakes." Analysis, using the Reading Miscue Inventory, of the performance of 20 selected pupils indicated that those taught with "Programmed Reading," which highlights letter-sound correspondences, generated miscues that emphasized letter-sound correspondences, produced more nonwords and fewer omissions, and showed a tendency to produce miscues with high graphic and sound similarity. Pupils taught by the language experience approach of "Reading 360" generated more miscues which were semantically acceptable and showed better understanding of what they had read, reflected in their retelling of the story.
