THE READING PROGRAM SPANS THE TOTAL CURRICULUM.
COOPER, J. LOUIS
THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED TO SHOW THAT THE READING PROGRAM SPANS THE TOTAL CURRICULUM--(1) WHAT READING SKILLS ARE REQUIRED FOR READING IN THE CONTENT AREAS, (2) WHO SHOULD TEACH THESE SKILLS, AND (3) WHAT MATERIALS ARE NEEDED. SKILLS SHOULD BE GROUPED ACCORDING TO SKILLS FOR READING A SINGLE STUDY-TYPE SELECTION, SKILLS FOR SECURING INFORMATION FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES, AND SKILLS FOR READING SHORT, SPECIFIC SELECTIONS. THESE SKILLS SHOULD BE TAUGHT DURING THE REGULAR READING INSTRUCTION PERIOD AND APPLIED DURING THE CONTENT AREA PERIOD WITHOUT FURTHER ATTENTION EXCEPT FOR REFINEMENT AND FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE HABIT OF USING THEM. MATERIALS TO BE USED SHOULD DELINEATE THE SPECIFIC SKILLS TO BE TAUGHT, PROVIDE WELL-ORGANIZED LESSONS FOR TEACHING THEM, SUGGEST SPECIFIC AREAS AND SITUATIONS FOR THEIR APPLICATION AND INTEGRATION, AND INCLUDE SELECTIONS OF APPROPRIATE CONTENT. FINALLY, PROVISIONS FOR THEIR APPLICATION IN A FUNCTIONAL SETTING MUST BE MADE BY THE CONTENT AREA TEACHERS. THE READING PROGRAM SPANS THE TOTAL CURRICULUM AND INVOLVES BOTH THE READING TEACHERS AND THE CONTENT AREA TEACHERS. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (SEATTLE, MAY 4-6, 1967). (NS)
