LITERATURE AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF READING SKILLS.
EARLY, MARGARET J.
THE MAJOR GOALS OF READING AND LITERATURE WERE CLARIFIED TO EMPHASIZE THE ROLE OF LITERATURE AS A VEHICLE FOR ENJOYMENT RATHER THAN FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF READING-STUDY SKILLS. THE MAJOR GOAL OF READING INSTRUCTION IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF PROFICIENCY IN TASKS REQUIRING READING. THIS GOAL INCLUDES THE DEVELOPMENT OF BASIC VOCABULARY AND COMPREHENSION SKILLS, THE RATE OF READING, READING HABITS, STUDY SKILLS, STUDY TECHNIQUES, AND DESIRABLE ATTITUDES. THE READING TEACHER'S MAIN CONCERN, HOWEVER, SHOULD BE THE DEVELOPMENT OF BASIC VOCABULARY AND COMPREHENSION SKILLS FOR THE RELUCTANT READERS AND PROVIDING FOR INTENSIVE PRACTICE OF STUDY TECHNIQUES AND RATE IMPROVEMENT FOR MOTIVATED READERS. THE MOTIVATION AND EXTENSION OF STUDY SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES FOR ALL STUDENTS SHOULD BE THE CONCERN OF THE CONTENT FIELDS. THE DEVELOPMENT OF DESIRABLE ATTITUDES SHOULD BE FOSTERED IN A LITERATURE PROGRAM MADE POSSIBLE BY THE WISE SELECTION OF BOOKS TO BE READ INCOMMON AND THE USE OF INCOMMON READING TO TEACH STUDENTS HOW TO READ TO ENJOY VARIOUS TYPES OF LITERATURE. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOICATION CONFERENCE (BOSTON, APRIL 24-27, 1968). (NS)
