New Methodology Significantly Improves Language Arts Skills of Middle School Students at Risk for Academic Failure.
Long, Kathy J.
A study ascertained the effectiveness of color-coded subject-predicate cards and learning strategies to teach language skills to middle school students at risk for academic failure. The 17 seventh-grade students significantly improved their scores on sentence type and subject-predicate identification as well as their academic grade in Language Arts after 4 weeks. The color-coded cards and learning strategies utilized in the study are inexpensive and easily constructed for use by general and special educators. Contains 29 references and 2 tables of data. Appendixes contain a diagram of the Sentence-Body Analogy learning strategy and a list of 4 sentence types. (Author/EF)
