ECLECTIC READING INSTRUCTION FOR PRIMARY GRADE SUCCESS.
MANNING, JOHN C.
ANY ECLECTIC READING PROGRAM MUST BE BASED ON (1) AN UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THE TACTILE, AUDITORY, AND VISUAL SYSTEMS DEVELOP IN EACH CHILD, (2) A KNOWLEDGE OF THE AVAILABLE AND USABLE READING APPROACHES, AND (3) AN ASSESSMENT OF THE COMPONENTS OF EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUES. INDIVIDUAL DIAGNOSIS AND TRAINING IS MANDATORY. A VISUAL DISCRIMINATION PROGRAM OF DIFFERENTIATING AMONG LETTER FORMS AND AN AUDITORY DISCRIMINATION PROGRAM STRESSING LETTER NAMES AND SOUNDS CONSTITUTE THE MOST EFFICIENT READING READINESS PROGRAM. A TACTILE LEARNING SYSTEM REFINES AUDITORY DISCRIMINATION SKILLS. THE EFFECTIVE READING TEACHER IS ONE WHO USES DIAGNOSTIC EVIDENCE AS A DEVELOPMENTAL METHOD, INDIVIDUALIZING THE USE OF MATERIALS TO IMPROVE SPECIFIC READING SKILL AREAS. SEVEN MAJOR APPROACHES TO THE TEACHING OF READING ARE LISTED--DEVELOPMENTAL, PHONIC, LINGUISTIC, LANGUAGE EXPERIENCE, ORTHOGRAPHIC STRESS, INDIVIDUALIZED-LIBRARY, AND SPECIAL. THEIR TEACHING SYSTEMS OR PHILOSOPHIES ARE DESCRIBED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (BOSTON, APRIL 24-27, 1968). (BS)
