Direction for Alabama Reading Teachers--A Handbook.
Alabama Univ., Birmingham.; Mobile County Public Schools, AL.
Designed to help teachers, especially Title I teachers, improve reading programs, this handbook presents guidelines for (1) enhancing the diagnostic-prescriptive reading system approach to teaching and learning, (2) promoting the continuity of learning from level to level, (3) broadening the range of skills taught, and (4) developing interest in reading beyond the demands of everyday assignments. Specifically, the handbook offers ideas and techniques for incorporating reading skills instruction into any subject area, develops a rationale for a diagnostic-prescriptive comprehensive reading approach, and discusses techniques for diagnosing reading problems and developing the skills a learner needs to read effectively. Appendixes contain extensive scope and sequence formats for kindergarten through grade 12, a glossary of terms used in reading instruction, a composite word list for use with preprimer through grade 8 students, some generalizations about teaching reading, and a list of tests used in reading diagnosis.
