Abigail Adams, an American woman by Charles W Akers( Book )

24 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 2,270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abigail Adams in her life exemplified what it meant to be a woman, an American, and a revolutionary of the transitional period between colonial status and independence. Her aspirations were not precisely the same as those either of her seventeenth-century ancestors or of nineteenth- and twentieth-century descendants. The role she defined for herself as a woman was that of a wife, but a role entirely the equal of her husband's -- not the same but equal. - Editor's preface

Effects of a supplemental program in structural analysis upon reading scores of children deficient in grammatic closure by Charles W Akers( )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study focused on whether a supplemental program in structural analysis would improve the reading proficiency of children identified as deficient in the syntax and inflections of their language. Sixty-nine second-grade children, whose psycholinguistic ages were determined by scores on a grammatic closure test, to be six months or more below their chronological ages, were randomly assigned to three groups of 23 subjects each. During the study, one group received 60 minutes of basal instruction per day; one group received 45 minutes of basal instruction plus 15 minutes of free reading; and the third group received 45 minutes of basal instruction plus 15 minutes of a supplemental program in structural analysis. Analysis of the results indicated that 60 minutes of basal instruction per day is as effective, in terms of oral reading achievement, as is 45 minutes of basal reading instruction plus 15 minutes of structural analysis; but 45 minutes of basal instruction plus 15 minutes of free reading is inferior to both the other procedures. There was no significant difference in the silent reading scores of the three groups. (Author/GW)
