Evaluations of the Suggestive-Accelerative Lozanov Teaching (SALT) Method in Teaching Various Subjects to Low- and Mid-Socioeconomic Elementary and Secondary School Students.
Schuster, Donald H.
A study was conducted to determine whether the spellinq achievement and school attitudes of third grade students from the middle socio-economic level could be accelerated relative to a control group with the SALT method, Lozanov's Suggestive-Accelerative Learning and Teaching. Spelling test words for pre- and post-testing were drawn from the common words in the SALT text and the conventional text. Independent variables of the student-teacher affective relationship, perceived school stress, and school learning orientation were included in the analysis of covariance. The results of this comparative study between one class taught by a SALT trained teacher and one taught by a conventionally trained instructor revealed the following: (1) the SALT class performed significantly better on the spelling achievement test than the controls; (2) there were reversed significant differences on the scales of student-teacher affective relations and school stress favoring the controls; and (3) on the school learning questionnaire, there was no significant difference between control and SALT students at the end of the year.
