RASMUSSEN, MARGARET
FOUR ARTICLES ON INDIVIDUALIZED READING AND SELF-SELECTION REPRINTED FROM "CHILDHOOD EDUCATION" AND "READING," THE JOURNAL AND BULLETIN OF THE ASSOCIATION FOR CHILDHOOD EDUCATION INTERNATIONAL (ACEI), ARE PRESENTED. THE FIRST ARTICLE IS A DISCUSSION OF SELF-SELECTION, OF THE TEACHER'S ROLE IN PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR SELF-SELECTION, AND OF THE CHILD'S RESPONSIBILITY IN DECIDING WHAT TO READ WHEN. THE SECOND ARTICLE CONTENDS THAT PROGRESS THROUGH SELF-SELECTION IS UNLIMITED BECAUSE SLOW AS WELL AS FAST READERS ARE ENCOURAGED AND CHALLENGED WHEN PERMITTED TO READ AT THEIR OWN RATE IN AS MANY AREAS AS THEY CHOOSE. THIS IS MADE POSSIBLE BY A PERMISSIVE PROGRAM IN A CAREFULLY PLANNED ENVIRONMENT WHICH PROVIDES FOR EVERY CHILD'S ABILITIES, NEEDS, AND INTERESTS. THE THIRD ARTICLE SHOWS TWO WAYS OF LOOKING AT INDIVIDUALIZED READING. THE PRINCIPAL RECOGNIZES THE NEED FOR ADMINISTRATORS TO ALLOW TEACHERS TO SEEK NEW AND BETTER WAYS OF TEACHING READING. THE TEACHER VIEWS INDIVIDUALIZED READING INSTRUCTION AS A COMBINATION OF A VARIETY OF APPROACHES. THE LAST ARTICLE SUGGESTS THAT INDIVIDUALIZED READING IS AN ATTITUDE THAT CHILDREN ARE HUMAN AND THAT READING IS A HUMAN EXPERIENCE. THIS IS AVAILABLE AS 1959-60 REPRINT SERVICE BULLETIN NO. 29 FROM THE ASSOCIATION FOR CHILDHOOD EDUCATION INTERNATIONAL, 3615 WISCONSIN AVE., NORTHWEST, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20016 FOR $0.50. (NS)
