Creative Activities in the Language Experience Approach to Teaching Reading.
This study was conducted to determine the effect that hands-on, creative activity using the Language Experience Approach would have on language usage in students' written stories. Twenty-five fifth grade students were randomly divided into three sample groups. Sample A received hands-on, creative stimulus and art materials; Sample B looked at and discussed pictorial stimulus; and Sample C received the same stimuli as both sample A and B. The language output of each group story written by the students was analyzed and compared. The final results indicated that a hands-on, creative approach alone did not present a stimulus different than did the other approaches in encouraging language output. (One table of data is included, and 25 references are attached.) (Author)
