2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Effective means of teaching spanish in elementary schools of denver, colorado, were studied. Efforts were directed toward determining the kind of learning and learning context that would make for maximum learning from instructional television. Project duration was from 1960 to the beginning of 1964. the purpose of the project was to systematically vary the elements in the learning situation, test different treatments and combinations, and identify the most effective combinations for different situations. Teachers were assigned at random to different experimental conditions so that an entire class would have the same treatment. Contexts for instructional television were discussed and were presented for both the fifth and sixth grade. Other reports in the denver-stanford project are ed 003 244 through ed 003 247. (jc)
Research in retrospect: administrative memoranda of the Denver-Stanford research project by John L Hayman( Book )

3 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Memorandums are provided on the administrative aspects of the joint project of the denver public schools and stanford university, titled "four years of research on the context of instructional television." The purpose of this project was to learn how instructional television could best fit into the total teaching situation, not to determine the effectiveness of educational tv. The teaching field selected for experimentation was elementary school spanish for fifth and sixth graders. A final report presented the general findings of the overall project. The present report was prepared not to duplicate and summarize the final document but to provide school administrators and other responsible groups with a comprehensive text on--(1) how the project was planned and instituted, (2) how it actually operated, (3) what problems were encountered and how they were overcome, (4) what effect it had on the teaching corps, principals, and parents, and (5) what the long-term implications are. Administrative procedures are thus reported that would not normally be included elsewhere. The "why" and "with what results" are covered extensively in more technical reports which can be obtained from either the U.S. office of education or the institute for communication research at stanford university.

The effectiveness of teaching reading in kindergarten by Paul McKee( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigated the effectiveness of beginning the teaching of reading in kindergarten. The longitudinal effects as well as the initial results were examined. The progress of the children in the study was followed from the kindergarten through the fifth grade. The sample consisted of 4,000 kindergarten pupils randomly assigned by the school to comparable control and experimental groups. Instructions were similar except for one major difference. The experimental group received planned, sequential instruction in beginning reading, while the control group had activities which developed reading readiness. The principal statistical technique was analysis of variance-covariance technique. The primary variable considered was the time of beginning reading. Other variables were mental age, chronological age, sex, iq, and family characteristics. These latter variables were also used as covariates. Comparisons were made on the criterion variable (reading achievement) between experimental and control groups and effects of other variables were studied in the same way. Analysis of variance allowed computation of the interaction between variables. In every case, attention was given to the interaction of the treatment variable (time of beginning reading) with the other variables in determining the effect of the criterion variable (reading achievement). Optimum reading achievement was obtained by boys and girls who received the experimental beginning reading instruction in kindergarten and who had an adjusted reading program in later grades. Such adjustment was necessary for the measurable advantages of early reading instruction to be preserved beyond the second grade. When the advantages of an early start in reading were followed up, statistically significant gains in reading achievement persisted throughout the entire study. (Gc)
