Assist Students in Achieving Basic Reading Skills. Module M-1 of Category M--Assisting Students in Improving Their Basic Skills. Professional Teacher Education Module Series.
Wonacott, Michael E.; Kendall, Elizabeth
This learning module, one of a series of 127 performance-based teacher education learning packages focusing on specific professional competencies of vocational teachers, deals with the task of assisting students in achieving basic reading skills. Addressed in the individual learning experiences included in the module are the following topics: the role of the vocational instructor in developing students' reading skills; creation of an appropriate environment; assessment of students' reading needs and abilities to handle instructional materials using such techniques as the cloze procedure; and techniques and strategies to use in helping students improve reading skills (teaching technical vocabulary, providing practical reading knowledge and tips, using reading games, supplementing reading assignments, individualizing reading help, and providing practice and reinforcement). Each learning experience contains an objective, one or more learning activities, and a feedback activity. The module provides student teachers with an opportunity to examine case studies, develop their own instructional materials, and assist students in developing reading skills in an actual teaching situation.
