Reading in the High School. What Research Says to the Teacher #11.
Fay, Leo C.
Organizational procedures and principles underlying a high school reading program are presented. The proposed developmental reading program involves creating positive attitudes toward reading and directing growth in vocabulary, word form mastery, all phases of comprehension and interpretation, reading speed, and oral reading. Practical application of reading skills in the content area subjects is stressed, and the need for total teacher involvement in the reading program is pointed out. Suggestions for appropriate remedial reading services are listed. Special emphasis is placed on evaluation of the total reading program and on the need for preparation of reading teachers. References are included. (RT)
