Teaching English and Reading Simultaneously for Eleventh Grade Non-Regent English.
The need for simultaneous teaching of reading skills and course content prompted the formation of a study guide which coordinates these two areas in an eleventh-grade nonregent English program used by Ramapo Central School District No. 2 in Spring Valley, New York. The guide provides exercises with a range of ability and achievement levels which adjust to individual student differences. It contains five literary units: (1) the short story, (2) the novel, (3) nonfiction, (4) drama, and (5) biography and a unit on the complete sentence. Each lesson is divided into five sections--(1) readiness, (2) purpose for silent reading, (3) oral reading and discussion, (4) word attack and word recognition skills, and (5) followup exercises. Study guide questions and word attack exercises are provided at the end of the lesson; an answer sheet is provided for the teacher. (BS)
