A WORKSHOP APPROACH TO READING PROBLEMS.
EDWARD, SISTER MARY
CLARKE COLLEGE IN DUBUQUE, IOWA, INITIATED AN NDEA SUMMER INSTITUTE IN READING IN 1965 TO UP GRADE ELEMENTARY READING INSTRUCTION AND TO CHECK UNDERACHIEVEMENT AMONG ITS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN. THE PROBLEMS INVOLVED WITH WORD RECOGNITION, TECHNIQUES OF QUESTIONING, COMPREHENSION, STUDY SKILLS, CRITICAL READING, CREATIVE READING, READING READINESS, AND THE LANGUAGE ARTS WERE STUDIED. ACTIVITIES AT THE INSTITUTE INCLUDED RESEARCH WORK BY THE PARTICIPANTS, DISCUSSIONS OF LECTURES GIVEN BY READING EXPERTS, OBSERVATION-DEMONSTRATIONS, EVALUATIONS OF CURRENT THEORIES AND INSTRUCTIONAL AIDS, AND THE PRACTICUM. THE PRACTICUM PROVIDED EXPERIENCES IN TEACHING DEVELOPMENTAL READING, READING IN THE CONTENT AREAS, DIAGNOSTIC TEACHING IN GROUP SITUATIONS, AND THE USE OF A VARIETY OF TECHNIQUES AND INSTRUCTIONAL AIDS WITH LEARNERS OF DIFFERENT ABILITIES. THE PARTICIPANTS EVALUATED THEIR EXPERIENCES TWICE--ONCE AT THE END OF THE INSTITUTE AND AGAIN THE FOLLOWING DECEMBER. THE RESPONSES WERE GENERALLY FAVORABLE. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (SEATTLE, MAY 4-6, 1967). (NS)
