READING IN THE CONTENT AREAS--INSTRUCTION AND APPLICATION.
SHEPHERD, DAVID L.
THE THEME OF THIS PAPER IS THAT EVERY TEACHER IS A TEACHER OF READING WHEREVER AND WHENEVER THE SKILLS ARE NEEDED. SINCE THE READING CONSULTANT IS PRIMARILY CONCERNED WITH REMEDIATION, THE NEED FOR IMPLEMENTING READING SKILLS IN SUBJECT MATTER COURSES IS IN THE HANDS OF THE TEACHERS IN EACH OF THESE AREAS. THE TEACHING OF THE FUNDAMENTAL UNDERSTANDINGS, THE LANGUAGE, AND THE TECHNICAL VOCABULARIES PECULIAR TO EACH CONTENT SUBJECT ARE DISCUSSED. THE IDENTIFICATION OF SPECIFIC SKILLS AND THE DETERMINATION OF PROCEDURES AND TECHNIQUES NECESSARY FOR TEACHING THOSE SKILLS IS EMPHASIZED. FUSING THE TEACHING CONTENT WITH READING IS IMPORTANT. FOR EXAMPLE, THOSE READING-STUDY SKILLS COMMON TO ALL CONTENT FIELDS REQUIRE A DIFFERENT AND PECULIAR USE IN SEPARATE SUBJECT-MATTER AREAS. THESE DIFFERENCES AS THEY APPLY TO CONTENT AREAS ARE DESCRIBED, AND PROCEDURES ARE SUGGESTED FOR VARIOUS PURPOSES AND TYPES OF MATERIAL. REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE COLLEGE READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (KNOXVILLE, TENN., APRIL 1968). (MC)
