This study examined the effects of a Direct Instruction (DI) reading program combined with Precision Teaching during a public school's summer program. Students received instruction from "Reading Mastery" programs for a six-week period. Students also practiced specific reading skills including letter-sound identification, sounding out words, and passage decoding, and they displayed their data on Standard Celeration Charts. Results showed that DI combined with Precision Teaching produced statistically significant gains as measured by informal and formal tests of reading. The results also indicated small to moderate effect sizes for the reading measures. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
