Guidelines for Reading.
New Hampshire Supervisory Union 40, Milford.
A reading program should stimulate intellectual curiosity. This philosophy is expressed in a 1967 reading guide for primary and secondary schools prepared by the Reading Committee of the Union 40 Curriculum Council of Milford, New Hampshire. It was developed as a result of the 1966 curriculum study by the Union 40 Curriculum Council. While it is built around the necessary concepts and skills, the guide emphasizes creativity and encourages innovation. Necessary skills in word recognition, listening, comprehension, vocabulary development, critical reading, and research are presented in a scope and sequence chart which indicates levels of introduction, enrichment, and mastery. The guide is divided into sections on basic reading skills, word recognition, listening skills, comprehension skills, vocabulary skills, study skills, locational skills, and critical reading. Suggested concepts, specific skills, activities, procedures, and evaluative techniques are listed in each section. The guide is enriched by an appendix listing a variety of teaching aids and evaluative devices, an extensive bibliography, an example of an evaluation form for teachers to use in evaluating the guide, and a list of recommendations for further study of the guide.
