This study examined the effects of two previewing activities on poor readers' oral reading miscues. The two previewing activities consisted of (a) a concept analysis activity (CAA) and (b) a motivation statement (MS). The oral reading miscues measured were (a) graphophonemic, (b) syntactic, and (c) semantic. To counterbalance for order of previewing activity and experimenters, a factorial/modfied Latin-Square design was used. An analysis of variance with repeated measures on the last factor was used to analyze the data. The results indicated the CAA significantly decreased oral reading miscues and increased oral reading speed.
