UPGRADING ELEMENTARY READING PROGRAMS.
WHIPPLE, GERTRUDE
TO IMPROVE READING INSTRUCTION IN MANY SCHOLS, THE AMOUNT, QUALITY, AND VARIETY OF READING MATERIALS AND OTHER AIDS TO LEARNING MUST BE INCREASED. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT STUDENTS HAVE ACCESS TO WELL EQUIPPED LIBRARIES. "THE HARVARD REPORT ON READING IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS" OFFERS EXCELLENT GUIDANCE FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF READING INSTRUCTION AND RECOMMENDS THAT NO ONE METHOD OF INSTRUCTION BE FOLLOWED. THE REPORT EMPHASIZES THE IMPORTANCE OF WORD RECOGNITION AND THE NECESSITY OF UNDERSTANDING THE WHOLE MEANING OF PASSAGES AND SUGGESTS A SEQUENTIAL APPROACH TO READING INSTRUCTION WHICH INCLUDES FLEXIBLE GROUPING. THE INDIVIDUALIZED READING APPROACH IS CONSIDERED AN EXCELLENT SUPPLEMENT TO THE PROGRAM. COORDINATION OF READING WITH OTHER MEANS OF LEARNING AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF CRITICAL READING SKILLS IN ALL SUBJECT AREAS ARE RECOMMENDED. SIXTEEN REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. THIS CITATION AWARD ADDRESS WAS PRESENTED TO THE 1966 INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE IN DALLAS AND IS AVAILABLE FROM IRA, BOX 695, NEWARK, DELWARE 19711. (WL)
