AN OPTIMUM READING PROGRAM FOR GRADES K-12 AND SCHOOL DISTRICT ORGANIZATION.
KIPLING, CECIL
A TOTAL READING PROGRAM WHICH MEETS THE NEEDS OF ALL CHILDREN IN GRADES K-12 SHOULD BE BASED ON SOUND PHILOSOPHY AND RESEARCH. CHILDREN SHOULD BE TAUGHT TO READ AT A LEVEL AT WHICH THEY CAN FUNCTION SUCCESSFULLY. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS, ADEQUATE MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT MUST BE PROVIDED TO MAINTAIN INDIVIDUAL RECORDS, AND PARENTS MUST BE CONSIDERED PART OF THE READING TEAM. ELEMENTARY TEACHERS SHOULD HAVE A MINIMUM OF 6 SEMESTER HOURS IN ACCREDITED READING COURSES. SECONDARY TEACHERS RESPONSIBLE FOR READING SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE READING COURSE. IN ADDITION, READING SPECIALISTS AND CONSULTANTS SHOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR CONDUCTING INSERVICE TRAINING PROGRAMS. THE ORGANIZATIONAL PATTERN OF THE READING PROGRAM SHOULD PERMIT THE STAFF TO FUNCTION EFFECTIVELY. INTERMEDIATE UNITS AND STATE DEPARTMENTS OF EDUCATION SHOULD PROVIDE CONSULTING SERVICES, PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES, AND DIRECTION TO COORDINATE RESEARCH. REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. (ES/BK)
