Sequential Levels of Reading Skills, Prekindergarten--Grade 12.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY.
This guide is designed to help teachers, staff members responsible for teacher training, and reading supervisors provide better reading instruction. The skills that lead to mature reading are arranged on eight levels of developmental sequence. Level A is concerned with developing prereading skills. Levels B to D treat initiating and developing basic reading skills; levels E to H stress extending, refining, and applying reading skills. Within each level, these skills are grouped in relation to the development of word power, recognition and interpretation of meaning, and work-study skills. Arrangement by level of difficulty rather than by grade level should encourage individualized instruction. The application of each skill to practical reading experiences in various curriculum areas and in functional situations in and out of the classroom is emphasized. Skills that help the reader develop appreciation of literary excellence are not included. A short overview of the levels of reading skills is given, and specific suggestions for skill application are noted. (BS)
