TENTATIVE READING READINESS CURRICULUM FOR EAST CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
AYERS, DOROTHY; AND OTHERS
OBJECTIVES ARE TO DEVELOP VISUAL AND AUDITORY DISCRIMINATION, MOTOR COORDINATION, SOCIAL ADJUSTMENTS, LANGUAGE FACILITY, FAMILIARITY WITH AND ACCEPTANCE OF CLASSROOM PROCEDURE, INTEREST IN READING, INDEPENDENT THINKING, NUMBER AWARENESS, AND APPRECIATION OF ART AND MUSIC. UNIT AREAS FOLLOW THE OUTLINE OF OBJECTIVES AND ARE TAUGHT AS PART OF THE DAILY PROGRAM RATHER THAN IN A SPECIFIC CHRONOLOGICAL SEQUENCE. TEACHING METHODS ARE ADAPTED TO INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES IN THE CLASSROOM. A PLEASANT AND INTERESTING CLASSROOM ATMOSPHERE STIMULATES THE DESIRE TO LEARN. ALTHOUGH ALL CHILDREN ARE CREATIVE, DIFFERENT FORMS OF EXPRESSION AND MEDIA WORK BEST WITH DIFFERENT CHILDREN, AND THE TEACHER'S AWARENESS OF THE SUITABILITY OF VARIOUS MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES MAKES THE LEARNING PROCESS MORE EFFECTIVE. CHILDREN SHOULD BE GIVEN TASKS SUITED TO THEIR CAPABILITIES, THEIR UNDERSTANDINGS, AND THEIR INTERESTS. THEY SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY FOR INDEPENDENT STUDY. SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES FOR DEVELOPING ABILITIES NEEDED FOR SUCCESS IN BEGINNING READING INCLUDE STORY TELLING, FIELD TRIPS, ACTION GAMES, DRAMATIZATIONS, LIBRARY VISITS, AND GROUP DISCUSSIONS. A LIST OF COMMERCIAL AIDS WHICH MAY BE USED AS SOURCES FOR IDEAS OR ACTIVITIES IN VISUAL DISCRIMINATION, NUMBER AWARENESS, AND MUSIC IS PRESENTED. A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF APPROXIMATELY 70 ENTRIES IS INCLUDED.
