Comparison of reading approaches in first grade teaching with disadvantaged children by Albert Josiah Harris( Book )

4 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relative effectiveness of the skills-centered approach and the language-experience approach to teaching reading to disadvantaged urban children in the first grade was examined, and methods compared. Approximately 50 teachers and 1,150 students made up the project sample. Types of data gathered included pretest and post-test scores of the pupils and instructional time logs, classroom observations, and preferred reading approaches from their teachers. Project results showed that the disadvantaged child can learn to read by the same methods that are used with middle and upper-class children. Among the four methods used, the basal reader method, employed with the skills-centered approach, appeared to be the ideal approach. The other methods were the basal reader method with phonovisual word recognition and two language-experience approaches with and without audio visual supplementation. Differences among the methods were sufficiently small as to be inconclusive. Continuation and replication studies were planned. (Jh)

Individualizing first-grade reading according to specific learning aptitudes by Albert Josiah Harris( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A description is made of an attempt to apply to first grade reading instruction the idea that children can benefit when the teaching of reading is adapted to their cognitive style. Pretesting was done to discover the strengths and weaknesses in learning aptitudes, and the teaching procedure was modified to emphasize comparatively strong abilities. Two hypotheses were researched--that first-grade children with low visual perception readiness scores will benefit when given individualized instruction emphasizing kinesthetic or phonic instruction and that the ability to profit from such method of instruction is related to measured aptitude for the particular method of instruction. The 20 children given special instruction during individual conferences achieved better in reading than the statistical predictions based on the visual perception scores indicated. No significant association could be established with either the specific method of teaching used or the presence of presumed aptitude for that method
