The Effectiveness of Language! in Raising Reading Scores in One Middle School
Carmichel-Hall, Cathy
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene College
This study sought to determine the effectiveness of the "Language!" reading curriculum and a school district-developed grade-level reading curriculum in raising student reading scores on Tennessee state-mandated tests and to determine if student attitudes toward academic and recreational reading differ based on reading curriculum. The researcher used a quasi-experimental research design using Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) scores of students in one urban middle school. Data was also gathered through the use of a reading attitude survey. Although no statistical significance was discovered, some interesting information was obtained.
