The Elementary Reading Reference Guide. Revised.
Fairbanks North Star Borough School District, AK.
Designed to complement the RIM (Reading-Instruction-Maintenance) Reading Skill Guide, this reference guide provides a useful tool for teachers utilizing the RIM Model in grades kindergarten through six. In the RIM model, readiness (R) stands for exposure to the skill, mastery not expected; instruction (I) stands for formal presentation with expectation of 80% mastery on tests at that grade level; and maintenance (M) stands for review and expansion of the skills previously presented. Components of the guide include (1) behavioral objectives (coded and stated according to the RIM Reading Skills Guide), (2) definitions and rules (clarification of terms, essential components for teaching strategies, and helpful hints), (3) examples (sample words, worksheet items, and suggested activities, questions or procedures), and (4) resources and comments (recommended reference books and space for teachers to note additional helps, ideas, resources, and criticism). The skill areas covered include prereading, word recognition (including phonetic and structural analysis), vocabulary, comprehension, and study skills. (HOD)
