Using Language Arts Skills and Strategies in Aesthetic Literary Experiences To Improve the Reading Achievement of Third-Grade Students.
Ballinger, Mary F.
This program was developed and implemented to improve the reading achievement of low-performing third-grade students through the use of language arts skills and strategies. The objectives for the program were for 80% of the target group to improve their identification of sight words; demonstrate positive reading attitudes; increase pleasure reading; increase their fluency in oral reading; and increase their decoding proficiency. The researcher modeled strategies, provided opportunities for in-class aesthetic reading, and encouraged the borrowing of books from the media center. The target group showed progress, but all objectives were not met. Contains 76 references; appendixes contain data, daily reading log forms, survey instruments, and pre- and posttest results.
