ACQUIRING FOREIGN LANGUAGE READING SKILLS.
BIRKMAIER, EMMA; JACK, WILLIAM
ONE-DAY WORKSHOPS WERE SET UP IN NINE DIFFERENT REGIONAL CENTERS IN MINNESOTA TO DEAL WITH THE PROBLEM OF TEACHING READING SKILLS IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE. EACH CENTER WAS ASSIGNED SPECIFIC AND RELATED TOPICS TO WORK ON, FOREIGN LANGUAGE SPECIALISTS TO SERVE AS GROUP INSTRUCTORS, AND GUEST SPEAKERS. THE FIRST FOUR WORKSHOPS WERE CONCERNED WITH PRE-READING INSTRUCTION AND DEVELOPING READING SKILLS IN INTRODUCTORY, INTERMEDIATE, AND ADVANCED COURSES, WITH SPEECHES DELIVERED BY DALE LANGE, DALE WHITESIDE, FLORENCE STEINER, AND MARJORIE PEI. WALTER F.W. LOHNES SPOKE AT THE WORKSHOP ON MATERIALS AND METHODS FOR USE IN LEVELS FOUR AND FIVE, AND LESTER MCKIM AT THE WORKSHOP ON USING GRADED READERS IN DEVELOPING READING SKILLS AT LEVEL ONE. THE LAST THREE WORKSHOPS ON REMEDIATION AND ACCELERATION, INDEPENDENT READING, AND EVALUATION AND TESTING HEARD PAPERS PRESENTED BY EMMA BIRKMAIER, HEDI OPLESCH, AND FRANK GRITTNER, RESPECTIVELY. AN ABSTRACT OF EACH GUEST SPEAKER'S PAPER IS GIVEN ALONG WITH RECOMMENDED STRATEGIES THAT WERE DEVELOPED AT EACH OF THE WORKSHOP SITES. ALSO INCLUDED ARE A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF BOOKS AND ARTICLES, AND OBSERVATIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS SUGGESTED IN GROUP DISCUSSIONS. (SS)
