Correcting Reading Problems in the Classroom. Final Report, Interpretive Manuscript No. 4.
Smith, Carl B.; And Others
The responsibility of the classroom teacher in the treatment and prevention of reading difficulties is discussed. An interpretation of research about a set of causes, model programs aimed at overcoming the problems, steps in setting up a program, and recommendations and guidelines for these programs are included. A discussion of how to identify specific skill deficiencies explains the use of teacher-made tests, classroom observation, and standardized tests. A description of sample techniques and of successfully operating programs suggests treating general and specific reading deficiencies by using a method which suits the particular needs, by properly organizing the classroom, by providing varied skill-building materials, and by adequately preparing the classroom teacher. Pitfalls to be avoided ard noted. Explanations of terms and techniques used in classroom diagnosis and a bibliography are appended. (JB)
