Reading for the "Non-Titled" Underachiever: A Holistic Approach.
Smith, Christine C.
A holistic approach to teaching reading can assist the underachieving student. The holistic approach includes each of the communication arts in teaching strategies: listening, writing, reading, and oral language (speaking), each of which interacts with the content area. By using the student's own natural abilities to predict, confirm, comprehend, and self-correct in developing teaching strategies within the communication arts in the content area, the teacher can provide a holistic learning experience. (Two demonstration lessons are provided indicating specific steps for the teacher to take and what communication arts and natural abilities are to be utilized. One begins with graphics; the other includes a directed reading activity.) (TJ)
