Guided practice : use of low-cost networking by Russell Monroe Gersten( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigated the effectiveness of the use of computer networking in providing guided practice in teaching reading comprehension to middle school students (grades 6-8) in remedial reading class. (Guided practice is defined as the phase of instruction immediately following the presentation of a new skill, concept, or strategy, in which the teacher assesses student comprehension of the new skill in order to enhance student achievement in both whole class and small group instruction.) Teachers used TeacherNet, a low-cost prototypic computer networking device that plugs several student keyboards into the communication board of a single personal computer to determine which segments of a curriculum require additional remediation. The reading curriculum consisted of two strands--QAR2 (a meta-cognitive strategy based on the work of Raphael) and rule-based inferences (a strategy for drawing inferences from material implicit in the text). Results indicated a significant effect for rule-based inferences, but not for qar2. The effect was maintained over a 2-week period. Results indicate the immediacy of feedback was more useful in teaching the abstract and demanding rule-based inference curriculum than the easier, more familiar qar2 curricula. Students responded positively to the immediacy of feedback and the group accountability involved in the guided practice. A review of prior research introduces the report and the appendix contains copies of sample reading passages and their related questions. (33 references) (Author/SD)
