The Effects of Instruction in Science Process Skills on Reading Comprehension of Pre- and In-Service Elementary Teachers.
Campbell, Richard L.
This study examined the effect of instruction in science process skills on teachers' achievement in reading, testing the hypothesis that teachers' reading comprehension can be improved significantly through the use of science process skills. Pre- and in-service teachers enrolled in competency based science methods courses formed the two groups for the study. Both groups were instructed in process skills using self-instructional programs, one on basic process skills and the other on integrated process skills. Pre- and post-testing of reading comprehension using the Nelson Denny Reading Test, Form A, revealed there were significant changes on the post-test scores for both groups after studying science process skills.
