The Effectiveness of Newspaper Use on Reading Achievement of Secondary Special Educational Students.
Stetson, Elton G.; And Others
A 9-week program examined the effectiveness of newspaper use on reading achievement among 107 secondary special education students. Ss were assigned to a control group which did not use newspapers, or to two experimental groups, one of which used incidental and one, teacher-directed newspaper reading. Results of pre- and posttests on the Peabody Individual Achievement Test indicated that experimental Ss gained an average 6.6 and 3.6 months in word recognition and 5.6 and 1.5 months in comprehension while control Ss demonstrated no gains.
