Handbook for Planning an Effective Reading Program.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.; California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
Intended to help provide breadth to a reading program, this handbook emphasizes that reading is learned and reinforced through the use of the other language skills: listening, speaking, and writing. The first section relates to key instructional components of effective reading programs and includes divisions dealing with skill development (comprehension, language processing, and fluency and flexibility); motivation; and application (reading and responding to literature, reading in the content areas, recreational reading, study skills, and practical uses of reading). The second section relates to key issues for implementing a high-quality reading program and includes divisions dealing with classroom-level issues (classroom climate and organization, personalized instruction, teaching methodology, systems for monitoring progress, and management systems) and with school-level issues (policies and philosophy, availability of programs and courses, student placement, student disabilities, assessment, and reports to parents). Also included is a checklist for use in evaluating the components of an effective reading program. (TJ)
