Summary

The effectiveness of teaching specific, related reading skills within a content subject was tested in seventh-grade science classes. Comparisons were made among seventh graders who were taught no reading skills in conjunction with a content subject, seventh graders who received instruction in reading skills within the social studies content, and seventh graders who received instruction in reading skills within the science content. The achievement of the three groups was compared according to performance on the Iowa Silent Reading Test, the New York State Science Survey, and the New York State Social Studies Survey. Samples were drawn from the total population of approximately 2,000 students and evaluated for reliability. The level of significant achievement gain between pretest and post-test scores was determined, and the amount of growth from group to group was evaluated. Results indicated that the reading, science, and social studies instructional programs produced significant gains regardless of the developmental reading program, but growth in subject content achievement was measureably affected by this reading instruction. Teacher experience in reading skills instruction may have been a factor. An appendix gives detailed, independent corroboration of the data processing. (WB)
