Teaching Reading through Teaching Science: Development and Evaluation of an Experimental Curriculum for Correctional ABE Programs.
Dirkx, John M.; Crawford, Marcedes
Journal of Correctional Education, v44 n4 p172-76 Dec 1993
An experimental module that used the natural world as a context for teaching reading to adults with low reading skills was developed and tested with 18 inmates. Although participants demonstrated only modest gains in reading skills and behaviors compared to the control group, they attended many more hours of instruction and were more enthusiastic and excited about the program.
