Perceptions, Knowledge and Use of Word Walls among First Graders.
Walton, Rebecca E.
This study explored what first grade children say and know about the use of "word walls." Sixty-three first graders and their three teachers were interviewed about their perceptions and use of the word wall. Interview answers showed that the students in this study used the word wall for writing and spelling words and teacher directed activities. Additional results appear to show that the instructional emphasis of a teacher will influence how and when the children use the word wall. This finding implies that for analogy instruction with word walls to be effective, direct and systematic teacher instruction must occur. Appendixes contain the survey instrument, a letter to parents, and data. (Contains 31 references, 7 tables, and 15 figures.) (Author/RS)
