A Comparative Study of Two Methods of Reading Instruction: An Individualized Approach Using Peer Teachers Versus a Basal Reader Method.
Milford, Joyce Leona
Achievement gains of 78 fourth-grade students taught with an individualized approach using peer teaching were compared with gains of 64 fourth-grade students in another school who were taught with a basal-reader approach. Analysis of results from pretesting and posttesting with the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills indicated that the gains of the peer-teaching group were significantly greater than those of the basal-reader group for reading and writing mechanics but not for spelling. It was concluded that the use of peer teachers is a viable method of individualization and that such individualization need not be dependent upon additional funds for materials and equipment.
