A PRIMER FOR PROFESSORS OF READING.
ALLEN, DARLENE JO
A PROCEDURE TO TEACH NATIVE SAMOANS HOW TO TEACH READING IS DESCRIBED. THE STORY SEQUENCE IDEA WAS USED FOR SELF-TEACHING. CLASS MEMBERS COLLECTED SAMOAN LEGENDS AND RECORDED VILLAGE LIFE IN ORIGINAL BOOKS ADAPTED TO VARIOUS READING LEVELS. THIS PRODUCTION WAS DIVIDED INTO SIX STEPS--(1) ANALYZING EXISTING TEXTBOOKS, (2) WRITING THE STORIES, (3) CONTROLLING THE VOCABULARY, (4) ILLUSTRATING THE STORY, (5) PLANNING TEACHER MANUALS, AND (6) PLANNING ACTIVITY BOOKS. FINALLY, THE STUDENTS AS A GROUP PRODUCED COORDINATED SETS OF MATERIALS BASED ON INDIVIDUAL STORY SEQUENCES. NOT ONLY DID THIS PROJECT IMPROVE THE ORAL AND WRITTEN ENGLISH OF THE SAMOAN STUDENTS, BUT IT ALSO MADE THEM MORE ALERT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE OF TEXTBOOK MATERIAL. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (BOSTON, APRIL 24-27, 1968). (BS)
