A Multimodal Remedial Program for Teaching Skills of Written Expression to Intermediate Grade Students.
McDonald, Alma Alene
To determine the effectiveness of a program for reteaching writing skills, students from ten intermediate classrooms in three schools, who achieved poor scores on a screening instrument or received teacher evaluations indicating low skill levels, participated in this study. An experimental group of 78 subjects received a pretest, a program of ten two-part lessons covering basic skills of written expression, and a posttest. The control group of 35 subjects received only pre- and posttesting. Participants in the experimental group evidenced significantly higher gains than did the control group, on five of ten tasks. The program appeared, therefore, to have been effective in helping students improve their writing skills. In addition, it was shown that teachers of different backgrounds could successfully implement this program with a minimum of inservice training. (Author/KS)
