A TEACHER'S GUIDE TO CONTINUOUS PROGRESS IN READING INSTRUCTION, 1967.
HALES, CARMA J.; AND OTHERS
CONTINUOUS PROGRESS EDUCATION, A TITLE III PROJECT, OPERATES ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT EVERY CHILD IS UNIQUE IN HIS OWN NEEDS AND CAPABILITIES. TO INSURE OPTIMUM LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT FOR EACH CHILD, THESE NEEDS SHOULD BE CAREFULLY PROVIDED FOR. THE IMPLEMENTATION OF A CONTINUOUS PROGRESS PROGRAM DEPENDS ON THE CLARIFICATION OF LONG RANGE GOALS AND SPECIFIC BEHAVIORAL OBJECTIVES AND ON THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE SKILLS AND CONCEPTS TOWARD WHICH LEARNING SHOULD BE GEARED. FOR CONTINOUS PROGRESS IN READING INSTRUCTION, A GUIDE WAS DEVELOPED FOR INITIATING A READING PROGRAM THAT ESPOUSES THE BASIC PHILOSOPHY OF CONTINUOUS PROGRESS EDUCATION. IT GIVES AN OVERVIEW OF GOALS FOR DEVELOPING READING INTEREST AND COMPETENCE, ORGANIZING INSTRUCTION, SETTING UP BEHAVIORAL OBJECTIVES, AND APPRAISING READING GROWTH. SUGGESTED BEHAVIORAL OBJECTIVES FOR EACH OF THE ELEMENTS OF A SEQUENTIAL PROGRAM OF READING SKILLS COVER WORD ATTACK, VOCABULARY, COMPREHENSION, AND APPLIED READING. IT ALSO LISTS WAYS OF IMPLEMENTING THE PROGRAM THROUGH AN ENVIRONMENT ORGANIZED FOR OPTIMUM LEARNING AND THROUGH APPROPRIATE AND ADEQUATE MATERIALS AND LEARNING EXPERIENCES WHICH MEET TOTAL GROUP AND INDIVIDUAL PUPIL NEEDS. THE GUIDE IS WELL APPENDED WITH SAMPLE LESSON PLANS, GUIDELINES, AND EVALUATIVE TECHNIQUES, AND OFFERS AN EXTENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY FOR INTERESTED TEACHERS. (NS)
