TEACHING READING TO THE BILINGUAL CHILD.
SIZEMORE, MAMIE
SOME OF THE NEWER APPROACHES TO THE TEACHING OF SECOND LANGUAGES AS APPLIED TO ENGLISH READING INSTRUCTION FOR INDIAN AND MEXICAN AMERICAN STUDENTS ARE EXPLORED. SPECIAL EMPHASIS IS GIVEN TO THE UNIQUE CULTURAL AND EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS FACED BY THE CHILDREN OF THESE ETHNIC GROUPS. CONSIDERABLE EMPHASIS IS GIVEN TO THE NEED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SPEAKING AND LISTENING COMMUNICATION SKILLS TO FACILITATE THE LEARNING OF READING SKILLS. A MAJOR PORTION OF THE TEXT IS DEVOTED TO A DETAILED REVIEW OF PHONICS, AS USED IN THE TEACHING OF READING. SPECIFIC REFERENCE IS MADE TO READING SKILLS WHICH SHOULD BE MASTERED BY ALL READING STUDENTS. THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF THE READING PROGRAM IS TO ENABLE STUDENTS TO READ ALL TYPES OF MATERIAL WITH COMPREHENSION, EASE, AND ENJOYMENT. (DK)
