The Applications of Remedial Reading Techniques, Including Miscue Analysis, to High School Students in Remedial Classes: An Exploratory Study.
Roy, Joy Kyle
The usefulness of miscue analysis as a teaching organizer for diagnostic and evaluative remedial reading instruction was investigated in a sample of 28 black high school students. The students were divided into a control group of 14 pupils and two experimental groups of seven students each: an intensive class needing individual instruction and an independent group who did not. Miscue analysis was used with both types of experimental groups but not with the control group. Analysis of results indicated that there was no conclusive evidence that miscue analysis is an effective organizer of teaching methods nor that it can aid remedial students of adequate reading ability, though gains favored the experimental groups. Improvement in attitude toward reading also favored the experimental groups. (Author/AA)
