Report on Phase I (Interest, Comprehension, & Readability) Prepublication Learner Verification of "Reading Basics Plus," Harper & Row, Publishers, Inc.
Ball, Edward H.
"Reading Basics Plus" consists of an integrated set of texts, workbooks, duplicating masters, word cards, charts, and teacher's guidebooks. By a process of small group trials, students' and teachers' reactions to the proposed content of the "Reading Basics Plus" program for grades four, five, and six were obtained in order to provide editors and contributors with information about interest level, readability, comprehensibility, and vocabulary in the proposed selections. Results indicated that pupil interest in the material was high and that the level of reading difficulty of the material was appropriate for the grades for which it was designed. In addition, detailed information was gathered regarding specific difficult words in the proposed selections. This information was used in the development of glossaries and teacher's editions for the program. (Author/GW)
