Reading for Children Without--Our Disadvantaged Youth. Reading Aids Series, No. 3.
Whipple, Gertrude, Comp.; Black, Millard H., Comp.
Successful reading practices and programs for culturally disadvantaged children are discussed by five authorities in the field. The first section, written by Gertrude Whipple, defines the kinds of pupils considered to be culturally disadvantaged, tells why they need a special program, and outlines the type of program needed. Three sections deal with suitable classroom activities and materials for these children. The primary section is written by Patricia Eastland, Detroit Public Schools; the middle grades section by Leonore Wirthlin, Cincinnati Public Schools; and the secondary schools section by Gertrude L. Downing, Queens College. The last section, by Millard Black and Gertrude Whipple, describes 10 reading programs, some that are schoolwide and others that are school-system-wide. Some of the programs are operated by the public schools and others by private groups such as churches. References are included. (JB)
