Subjects were 40 second grade students from Lowell School, Waterloo, IA. The students met for 14 weekly forty minute sessions where they heard folktales, learned folktales to tell, and told or listened to each other tell folktales. All second grade students were tested with the ITBS Primary Battery in October 1986 (pre-test) and the subjects took the post-test in April, 1987. The null hypothesis stated there would be no significant difference in standard scores at p<.05 using as pre-and post-tests !TBS Primary Test V-Vocabulary when compared using NCE's to the national norms of that test.
