READING PROGRAM FOR IDAHO ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, GRADES 1-6.
MARKS, RUTH A.
THIS CURRICULUM GUIDE FOR READING INSTRUCTION IN IDAHO ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS WAS EVALUATED BY EDUCATORS THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF IDAHO. THE GUIDE OUTLINES THE SCOPE AND SEQUENCE OF WORK IN DEVELOPMENTAL READING FROM GRADES ONE THROUGH SIX IN THESE FOUR STAGES -- (1) READING READINESS, (2) BEGINNING READING, (3) ESTABLISHING FLUENCY IN READING, AND (4) IMPROVING COMPREHENSION AND STUDY SKILLS. THE DISCUSSION IS SUPPLEMENTED BY A CHART INDICATING THE GRADE LEVELS AT WHICH CHILDREN NORMALLY REACH VARIOUS LEVELS OF THE READING PROGRAM AND A READING SKILLS CHART SHOWING WHAT SKILLS ARE EMPHASIZED AT EACH GRADE LEVEL. TO HELP TEACHERS MEASURE AND EVALUATE READING ACHIEVEMENT, A READING READINESS CHECKLIST, A LIST OF STANDARDIZED READING TESTS, AND AN INFORMAL READING INVENTORY ARE PRESENTED WITH SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVING COMPREHENSION AND CRITICAL READING SKILLS. THE FOLLOWING NEW APPROACHES TO READING INSTRUCTION ARE DISCUSSED BRIEFLY -- (1) INDIVIDUALIZED READING, (2) I/T/A, (3) LINGUISTICS APPROACH, (4) PROGRAMED READING, (5) MONTESSORI, (6) THE LANGUAGE-EXPERIENCE APPROACH, AND (7) WORDS IN COLOR. A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF SELECTED REFERENCES AND A LIST OF TEACHING AIDS CONCLUDE THE GUIDE. (NS)
