A Comparison of the Oral Reading Errors of High and Low Ability First and Third Graders Taught by Two Approaches--Synthetic Phonic and Analytic-Eclectic by Donna E Norton( Book )

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

Forty first-grade and third-grade students participated in an investigation of differences between oral reading strategies of students taught with a phonics emphasis and those of students taught with an analytic-eclectic program. Results from analysis of a reading miscue inventory used with each student indicated that miscue patterns are directly related to reading approaches. The analytic-eclectic approach developed syntactic reading strategies and self-correction strategies and produced readers who relied heavily on the semantic acceptability of the passage. A synthetic-phonic approach developed graphic, phonic, and syntactic reading strategies, with small numbers of self-corrections. Specific types of errors were described for both age groups, and differences between errors of high and low ability readers were investigated. (Author/AA)
