Reading, K-6, Volume I.
Rochester Public Schools, Minn.
The first volume of an elementary curriculum guide prepared by the Summer Workshop Reading Committee of the Rochester Public Schools in Rochester, Minnesota, applies to kindergarten through grade 4. It is divided into the prereading level, the beginning reading level, and the independence level. Grade designations under each level suggest the level at which an average student is likely to be working, but teachers are encouraged to adjust instruction, activities, and materials to individual pupil needs and to use multiple approaches and flexible time schedules. Each reading level covers vocabulary development comprehension, oral reading, and study skills. The reading skills to be developed in each of these areas are outlined in four scope and sequence charts. The place of a developmental reading program in the total elementary school curriculum is described. Practical classroom activities with corresponding references and evaluative techniques are suggested to help teachers develop skills and evaluate reading instruction. This guide could serve as a frame of reference in planning the school year's program or a day's lesson, as a resource material in selecting appropriate materials, activities, and techniques, and as an aid in evaluating the total reading program.
