Also considered are planning for directed reading activity, establishing a reading program, and developing comprehension and word recognition skills with both structural and phonetic analysis. Skill assignments and a developmental sequence of reading skills are given. The goals of the English program, the spelling and handwriting units, and the rewriting of reading materials are described.
