A READING GUIDE FOR JUNIOR HIGH TEACHERS.
MILLS, JAMES D.
A MANUAL DESIGNED TO ASSIST TEACHERS IN THEIR EFFORTS TO IMPROVE THE READING SKILLS OF THEIR STUDENTS IS PRESENTED. IT IS BASED ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT READING CAN AND SHOULD BE TAUGHT AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE INSTRUCTION IN ALL SUBJECT AREAS. THE STUDENT SHOULD LEARN TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN FACTUAL READING, IMAGINATIVE READING, INTERPRETATIVE READING, AND ENTERTAINING READING. THE MATERIAL PRESENTED IS APPLICABLE TO VARIOUS SUBJECT AREAS AND PROVIDES ACTUAL PROCEDURES WHICH MAY BE USED IN THE CLASSROOM. WORD ATTACK SKILLS ENABLE THE STUDENT TO DETERMINE THE PRONUNCIATION AND IN SOME CASE THE MEANING OF NEW WORDS. PHONETIC AND STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS ARE EMPHASIZED, VOCABULARY SKILLS INCLUDE DRAWING MEANING FROM CONTEXT CLUES, EXTENDING WORD MEANINGS THROUGH ROOTS, UNDERSTANDING THE PURPOSE, VALUE, AND USE OF THE DICTIONARY, UNDERSTANDING SHIFTS IN THE MEANING OF WORDS, AND EXTENDING WORD MEANINGS USING SYNONYMS, ANTONYMS, AND HOMONYMS. THE COMPREHENSION SKILLS WHICH SHOULD BE TAUGHT ARE IDENTIFYING MAIN IDEAS, IDENTIFYING SIGNIFICANT DETAILS AND RELATING THEM TO THE IDEAS, SELECTING IMPORTANT WORDS, PHASES, AND PASSAGES, UNDERSTANDING TIME SEQUENCES, DISTINGUISHING BETWEEN FACTUAL STATEMENTS AND JUDGMENTS, RECOGNIZING AN AUTHOR'S POINT OF VIEW, CREATIVE THINKING, AND CRITICAL INTERPRETATION. SUGGESTIONS ARE GIVEN FOR HELPING CHILDREN READ DIFFERENT TYPES OF MATERIALS MORE RAPIDLY. OBSTACLES TO RAPID READING SUCH AS LIP READING, REGRESSING, AND LACK OF CONCENTRATION MUST BE ELIMINATED, THE SPEED MUST BE ADJUSTED TO THE TYPE OF MATERIAL. CHILDREN CAN BE TAUGHT TO MAKE USE OF TYPOGRAPHICAL AIDS AND WORD SIGNALS.
