A Comparison of Small Group and Individualized Instruction in Junior College Remedial Reading Programs.
Kurth, Ruth Justine
A total of 108 junior college freshmen participated in a study comparing the effectiveness of small group instruction with individualized instruction in remedial reading programs. Sixty of the subjects were taught in a small group classroom setting (ten students per class), while the remaining subjects received individualized instruction in a laboratory setting. Instructors were asked to emphasize word recognition, vocabulary, and comprehension skills. An analysis of pretest and posttest scores indicated that the teaching of reading comprehension and vocabulary skills was more effective when done in small group sessions than in individualized sessions.
