Abstract

Two procedures for correcting oral reading errors, Word Supply and Word Drill, were examined to determine their effects on measures of word recognition and comprehension. The two corrections were applied to 17 learning disabled, poor readers in a within-subjects design. Results indicated that the Drill correction significantly enhanced word recognition and comprehension of sentences which contained original error words. The findings are discussed in terms of “bottom-up” analyses of the reading process and their implications for instructional practice.
