Language and Science: Improving Oral Reading.
Jeremiah, Milford A.
Students at the secondary and postsecondary levels exhibit difficulty in the oral reading of scientific terminology, in part because of the abundance of polysyllabic words derived from Greek and Latin. Some of the problems observed include faulty stress placement, vowel insertion and deletion, vowel discrimination, and consonant insertion. Such practices as lexical reading through word classes, cloze techniques, and syntactic context are several techniques that teachers can utilize to improve students' oral reading of scientific terms.
