Factors of the Reading Process and Their Implementation in the Total School Curriculum.
Beery, Althea
The methods of reading instruction used and the emphasis given reading within the total elementary school program depend on the attitudes of the school administrators and the teaching personnel. While reading is commonly defined as a decoding process, it is actually a complex process of word recognition, comprehension, critical or evaluative reaction to what is read, and fusion of newly acquired knowledge with previous knowledge and experience. Each of these components of the reading process is discussed. Other factors inherent in the learner or in the learning situation which influence reading success are mentioned briefly. Among these are the teacher, the home environment, the school atmosphere, and opportunities to read and freedom to choose one's books. Oral language facility and the ability to listen with understanding are prerequisites to success in reading and should be developed early in the child through careful guidance, appropriate learning materials, and experiences which encourage him to inquire, to discover, and to create.
