Fusing Reading Skills and Content.
Robinson, H. Alan, Ed.; Thomas, Ellen Lamar, Ed.
This International Reading Association publication presents a view of the problems of reading in the content fields as they relate to the secondary school curriculum. The first part deals with the beginning and the growth of a comprehensive reading program at the University of Chicago Laboratory School. Eleven of the school's faculty provide insights into how a teacher in his own content area can upgrade his students' reading. An administrator and reading consultant at the same school relate how they support a school-wide reading effort. Papers composing the first part were all presented at a special institute at the 1969 International Reading Association Convention. Part 2 includes papers presented at other times during the convention but which were related to the general theme and which were in favor of a reading program as "part and parcel" of the content learning program. References are included with many of the individual articles. (NH)
