Curriculum Change Through Nongraded Individualization. A K-3 Reading Program.
Snake River School District 52, Blackfoot, ID.
An individualized, nongraded Title III/ESEA reading program to be used with children at kindergarten through third-grade levels has been developed at Moreland School in Moreland, Idaho. Using team teaching and individual and small group instruction, the program seeks to develop in the child prereading experiences, language experiences, expanded vocabulary, reading-thinking activities, and independence, enjoyment, and versatility in reading. Prereading experiences include work in sensory-motor integration, visual discrimination, auditory discrimination, and oral expression. Language experiences include dictations of stories the children tell. Expansion of reading vocabulary is achieved through exposure to materials, word recognition training, and directed reading-thinking activities. Word recognition skills such as phonic generalization, context clues, and structural generalization are the basis for independent reading. A bibliography, scope and sequence charts of word recognition skills, and sample skill packets and record forms are included. (AL)
