ENGLEWOOD PUBLIC SCHOOLS ELEMENTARY READING GUIDE.
ELEMENTARY READING COMMITTEE
THE IMPROVEMENT OF INSTRUCTION IN READING FOR EVERY CHILD IN THE ENGLEWOOD PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM WAS THE GOAL. TEACHERS OF INTERMEDIATE AS WELL AS PRIMARY LEVEL PUPILS WERE CONFRONTED WITH SEVERAL QUESTIONS--(1) HOW MANY OPPORTUNITIES ARE PROVIDED FOR EACH PUPIL TO EXPRESS HIS IDEAS IN A DIGNIFIED FRAMEWORK TO ONE OR TWO OF HIS PEERS, TO HIS CLASS, AND/OR TO THE TEACHER. (2) ARE CONTENT AREA SUBJECTS ORGANIZED INTO GROUPS OF TWO OR THREE SO EACH PUPIL MAY INTERACT IN A DISCUSSION. (3) IS A CONCRETE EXPERIENCE PROVIDED EACH DAY FOR EACH PUPIL TO EXPRESS HIS IDEAS, CONSCIOUSLY OBSERVING RULES OF GOOD DICTION, VOICE, VOLUME, AND INFLECTION. DISCUSSIONS ARE INCLUDED CONCERNING THE TEACHING OF LISTENING AND SPEAKING SKILLS, COMPREHENSION, VOCABULARY DEVELOPMENT, AND WORD RECOGNITION, IN THE USE OF THE SCHOOL LIBRARY, BASAL TEXTBOOKS, INDIVIDUALIZED READING, AND SUPPLEMENTARY READING, AND IN THE ORGANIZATION OF TEACHING IN A SEQUENTIAL READING PROGRAM. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT TEACHERS WILL USE THE CHARTS, SUGGESTED IDEAS, ACTIVITIES, AND RESOURCES OFFERED IN PLANNING READING LESSONS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LEVEL AND MATURITY OF THE CLASS.
