Basic Interaction: An Experiment in Improving Its Quality and Quantity.
Verner, Zenobia Brown; Willis, Bettie
The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of the newspaper as instructional material to promote classroom verbal interaction. Eight experimental classes (two each of tenth-grade English, sixth-grade reading and algebra, and eleventh-grade American history) used the newspaper for one week as an instructional tool to reach previously established instructional objectives. Four control classes (one each of the same subjects) did not use the newspaper. Significant changes in amount and quality of students' talk occurred in the experimental classes. (Author/KS)
