Long, Sandra; And Others
The first document of a curriculum series describes objectives for three units from a program to meet the needs of academically gifted elementary students in the area of reading, with emphasis on comprehension skills including critical and creative reading. Following an introduction on teaching critical reading, three major sections focus on units with the following objectives: (1) given a selection, the student will learn to anticipate events or concepts throughout the material; (2) given a selection, the student will determine the implied main idea or theme and hypothesize the nature of the characters; and (3) given a selection, the student will utilize the main points, the details, and the interrelationsip among the details to draw a conclusion or solve a problem. Contained within the first two sections are activities, worksheets, information on cues, steps for teaching the cloze procedure, and transparency masters. A third section provides materials for teaching students to reach conclusions based on figures (tables, charts, graphs, and maps), on riddles, and on details or facts as stated in a selection. (SB)
