SOS Research: A New Approach to an Old Problem.
Cobb, Edward S.
This paper on a research project on aural learning briefly (1) describes some of the difficulties which define the problem of aural learning; (2) discusses how that problem has been attacked in the past and why the author has elected not to follow that tradition; and (3) outlines an alternative approach. Research procedures are outlined and included (1) obtaining references through several ERIC and PASAR computer searches and conducting literature review; (2) designing a research plan to produce teaching materials and procedures by which visually handicapped students may learn more effectively through listening (immediate target population was comprised of visually handicapped adults--those over 16 years of age, out of school, who have not completed a high school education); and (3) outlining this alternative plan. The final section of this paper describes the following three forms of structural adaptation involved in the new alternative approach to aural learning: (1) Temporal; (2) content, and (3) sequential. A figure showing parts of the preliminary adaptation structure for aural study is appended. (LAS)
