TEACHING THE ESSENTIAL READING SKILLS IN SOCIAL STUDIES.
KRAVITS, ALVIN
TEACHERS NEED TO APPLY DIVERSE TECHNIQUES IN TEACHING THE READING SKILLS STUDENTS NEED TO COPE WITH THE COMPLEX STRUCTURE OF SOCIAL STUDIES. A SUGGESTED OVERALL APPROACH COVERS A DIRECTED READING ACTIVITY, VOCABULARY DEVELOPMENT, A STUDY FORMULA, AND STUDY SKILLS INSTRUCTION. TEACHERS COLLEGE OF COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY FORMULATED A DIRECTED READING ACTIVITY PLAN WHICH INCLUDES READINESS, CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT, SILENT READING, DISCUSSION, AND REREADING. SINCE SOCIAL STUDIES HAS ITS OWN UNIQUE VOCABULARY, AND, SINCE ITS TEXTBOOKS INVOLVE MORE DIFFICULT READING, VOCABULARY DEVELOPMENT THROUGH CONTEXT AND WORD STUDY WOULD IMPROVE OVERALL COMPREHENSION. A WORKABLE STUDY FORMULA IS NEEDED TO HELP STUDENTS STUDY IN THIS AREA. ROBINSON'S SQ3R FORMULA, MODIFIED FOR INTERMEDIATE LEVEL, IS ILLUSTRATED IN A SAMPLE OF FIVE STEPS--SURVEY, QUESTION, READ, RECITE, AND REVIEW. A FOURTH AREA IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF STUDY SKILLS INVOLVING EVALUATION AND SELECTION, ORGANIZATION, LOCATION OF INFORMATION, FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS, AND OTHER SPECIALIZED SKILLS. KARLIN'S CHECKLIST OF STUDY SKILLS SUGGESTS A USEFUL FORMAT FOR STUDY SKILLS INSTRUCTION. EIGHTEEN REFERENCES ON READING IN THE CONTENT AREAS ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (SEATTLE, MAY 4-6, 1967). (NS)
