Preteaching versus Reteaching in Chapter 1 Reading.
Logan, Sheril; And Others
Focusing on the change in instructional emphasis from remedial (re-teaching) to developmental (pre-teaching), this paper describes the Chapter 1 reading program in the Wichita (Kansas) Public Schools during the school years 1990-1991 and 1991-1992. This paper includes: diagrams describing the new agenda for an integrated language arts curriculum; materials aimed at helping teachers get their students involved in reading; descriptions of alternatives to conventional reading instruction; figures representing the "cluster" approach to literature discussion; progress reports for classroom and home use; and calendars of inservice teacher education activities. The paper concludes with a report of performance on standardized tests, showing program objectives achieved for both basic and advanced reading skills. Three graphs and a table are included. (RS)
