READING IN THE SUBJECT AREAS, GRADES 7-8-9.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY.
LANGUAGE ARTS TEACHERS ENDEAVOR TO LAY A GENERAL FOUNDATION IN READING AS A PART OF THE COMMUNICATION PROGRAM. EACH SUBJECT AREA, HOWEVER, HAS PARTICULAR READING PROBLEMS WHICH MUST BE FACED BY THE TEACHER IN DEVELOPING AN INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM. SUGGESTIONS ARE OFFERED TO JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS FOR IMPROVING INSTRUCTION BY GIVING SPECIFIC ATTENTION TO READING PROBLEMS PECULIAR TO EACH OF THE SUBJECT FIELDS. ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO READING SKILLS, LESSONS, AND ADDITIONAL NARRATIVE INFORMATION IN SOCIAL STUDIES, SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, INDUSTRIAL ARTS, AND LANGUAGE ARTS. THESE ARE DEVISED TO ASSIST THE SUBJECT SPECIALIST IN GIVING INSTRUCTION IN THOSE READING SKILLS BASIC TO MASTERY OF THE CONTENT OF THE SUBJECT. THE LESSONS IN EACH SUBJECT AREA ARE INTENDED FOR STUDENTS READING AT OR ABOUT GRADE LEVEL. EACH SKILL LESSON IN THE BODY OF THE MANUAL BEGINS WITH A "PROBLEM" APPROACH. FOR EXAMPLE, IF A TEACHER RECOGNIZES THAT STUDENTS CANNOT EXTRACT MEANING FROM GIVEN PRINTED MATERIALS BECAUSE THE VOCABULARY IS TOO DIFFICULT, THEN INSTRUCTION IS GIVEN IN THE USE OF CONTEXTUAL CLUES TO DETERMINE WORD MEANING. AS INDICATED IN EACH LESSON, THE STATED "PROBLEM" IS THE ONLY APPROACH OF MOTIVATION TO THE LESSON. AFTER THE PROBLEM IS IDENTIFIED, DIRECT INSTRUCTION IN THE SKILL IS GIVEN. EACH LESSON PLAN IS DIVIDED INTO TWO COLUMNS. COLUMN I DESCRIBES THE PROCEDURES NECESSARY FOR GIVING INSTRUCTION IN A SPECIFIC READING SKILL. COLUMN II GIVES DETAILED EXAMPLES THAT ILLUSTRATE THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROCEDURES. THE LANGUAGE ARTS READING LESSONS IN THE APPENDIX ARE INTENDED FOR INSTRUCTING THE FUNCTIONAL NON-READER.
