And All This Is Reading: English Language Arts Primary Reading Handbook.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
Emphasizing successful reading instruction as a nonrepetitive, creative process which provides the child with both challenge and opportunities for success, units in this handbook focus on the child as an individual--his behavior, his maturity, and his capacities for understanding, learning, and creating. Each of the 10 units provides teaching techniques and classroom examples concerning the child as he (1) explores and discovers, (2) listens, (3) talks, (4) expresses his ideas in writing, (5) feels competent, (6) gives clues to the teacher, (7) follows clues given by the teacher, (8) learns to select materials and activities, (9) helps and is helped by other children, and (10) thinks for himself. Appended are suggestions for teacher preparation, for developing specific reading skills, and for the use of audio-visual materials; recommended independent learning activities; a section on language development in the content fields--science, social studies, math, art, and music; and a brief bibliography.
