Jeremiah E. Burke High School Multicultural, Multiethnic Reading Skills Curriculum Guide.
Anderson, Jeanette; And Others
In designing this curriculum guide, the contributors drew materials from a variety of sources (social studies texts and reading workbooks) to help teachers develop student reading skills while indirectly exposing students to the customs, vocabularies, and histories of various ethnic groups and cultures. Activities are suggested for teaching word analysis skills, word meaning skills, comprehension skills, organizational skills, speed reading skills, study skills, real life reading skills, and newspaper reading skills. An answer key, a word frequency list, a test for quickly assessing reading ability, and materials on sustained silent reading are attached. (RL)
