MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to determine if sixth grade middle school students could obtain accuracy in identifying the fifty United States by using the Cover, Copy, and Compare method of instruction. The study involved five sixth grade students from a general education classroom in an urban middle school who were selected to participate in the study. The study contained three parts: the baseline, intervention and post intervention. The students were tested three separate times to determine their baseline knowledge of the fifty United States. Next, each student completed ten minute daily practice sessions and a daily assessment for each state group to record their progress in learning state locations. Two months after the intervention, the students were tested again to determine how many states had been retained by using the Cover, Copy, and Compare method of instruction. All students showed gains from their baseline data to their post intervention scores.
