Developing and Implementing an Individualized Reading Program.
Whitfield, Eddie L.; Dickey, Wayne B.
Effective individualized reading programs can mean the difference between success and failure for children with reading problems. There are five areas to be considered in the implementation of such a program: (1) diagnosis or needs assessment; (2) flexible grouping, based on either achievement, special needs, interest, social background, or a peer tutoring relationship; (3) material selection; (4) a balance of teaching methods; and (5) a personalized reading approach that involves an abundance of books in the classrom, student/teacher conferences, and development of a student's incentive to improve his or her skills.
