The multiple effects of whole language, precision teaching and Direct Instruction on first-grade story-reading

Neely, M. D.
This study compared the effects of three approaches to teaching reading to first graders: 1) a whole language approach using the Silver Burdett-Ginn World of Reading series, 2) a combination of the SBG series and Precision Teaching approaches, which emphasize tracking student progress to inform instructional decision-making, and 3) supplementing the SBG series for at-risk students using the Direct Instruction program, Reading Mastery paired with Precision Teaching. Results indicate that Reading Mastery + Precision Teaching produced faster fluency development and faster word-list accuracy development than the other two approaches.
