An Inventory of Reading Skills.
Oregon ASCD Curriculum Bulletin, v26 n312 pl-17 July 1972
The skills listed in this booklet may form the base guideline for organizing the total school reading program or for individual classroom teachers. Several reasons are listed for constructing a reading program around a sequential listing of skills: (1) an orderly arrangement, (2) diagnosis, (3) blueprint for organizing flexible groups, (4) goal setting, (5) teacher's personal growth, (6) awareness of areas of reading instruction, (7) record keeping for students and teachers, (8) reporting to parents, and (9) transfer of records. The skills are arranged in general areas: auditory and visual discrimination; word attack skills; skills of analytical reading; locational and acquisitional skills; skills of organizing and recording; miscellaneous reading skills. Within each of the six general areas skills are ordered from easy to difficult. The easier skills normally denote those developed at an earlier age; difficult skills at a later age. (Author/WR)
