A Comparison of Four Workbooks and the Rahway Public Schools Reading Skills Array.
Reid, Kerry L.
A study investigated whether the workbooks used in the first grades of the Rahway, New Jersey, public schools provided adequate practice in the skills listed in that school district's reading skills array. The four workbooks analyzed were (1) "Phonics We Use: Book A," (2) "The Phonics Workbook: Book A," (3) "Programmed Reading Activities for Books 1-7," and (4) "New Phonics We Use: Book A." A detailed outline of the skills required in each workbook and the number of examples of each were compared with the reading skills array. The results showed that the "Phonics Workbook" and the "Programmed Reading Activities for Books 1-7" provided the most adequate practice in the skills listed in the skills array (Twenty-nine tables of findings are included.)
