Dan and His Pets. Books One Through Five.
Shiprock Independent School District 22, NM.
The social setting of the Navajo Reservation is depicted in this reading series for children whose preschool language is other than English, in the hope that familiar scenes will induce greater interest in the reading material. The narration is presented under each illustration and is repeated on the page following the illustration to focus the child's attention solely on the written word. Books I, II, and III---based on the experiences of a male character---concentrate on the first basic spelling pattern which characterizes the English language. After using the first books of the series, observers noted less interest among female students than male students; therefore, Books IV and V---concentrating on the second and third major English spelling patterns---emphasize the experiences of a female character. RC 003 905 is a teaching guide for this series. (JH)
