Reading and Typing: A Linguistic Reading-Typewriting Program for Beginning Readers. Volume 1, Teachers Edition.
Bloomer, Richard H.; Bernazza, A. M.
A linguistic reading-typewriting program for beginning readers is described. It is based on the idea that combining reading and typing into a single program allows the child the benefit and motivation of learning to read that which he writes and to write that which he reads. It provides the child an opportunity to develop his own experience stories and to do independent reading and writing at an early age. This system integrates the typewriter with the "progressive part" phonetic system in which each new concept of learning is combined with all prior learnings into increasingly more complex experiences. The teaching unit for the program is the letter and its sound. Correct typewriter technique is emphasized. Games and exercises are designed to give the children practice in visual and auditory discrimination, two-letter blending, and combination sounding. Practice is also given in forming and recognizing new words, understanding word meanings, and using context clues in sentences. (RT)
