Mulé, Christina M.; Daniels, Brian; Volpe, Robert J.; Briesch, Amy M.; Joseph, Laurice M.; Harris, Kristin; Silwinski, Samantha; Leslie, Laurel K. – Journal of Behavioral Education, 2018
Traditional drill and practice (TDP) has been shown to be both effective and efficient for increasing word recognition. WordSheets (WS) is a novel drill procedure similar to TDP with two key differences: (a) WS increases opportunities to respond, which may increase efficiency and (b) WS present instructional stimuli in a context that more closely…
