Learning to Read Through Experience. Second Edition.
Lee, Dorris M.; Allen, R. V.
This book discusses a plan for "learning to read through experience." It is a plan for developing reading ability as an integral part of the development of all the communication skills. It is intended to build on and to continue to provide individual experiences for each child while increasing the common group experiences. Although the plan focuses on learning to read through experience, the book deals with the language arts, reading, listening, speaking, and writing as factors which contribute to reading development. Five chapters comprise the text of the book: (1) Reading as Communication, (2) Gauging a Child's Development, (3) Language Experiences in Reading Development, (4) A Good Learning Environment, and (5) Group and Individual Activities. Appendixes are as follows: (A) Basic Word List, (B) Relationship of Communication Skills, (C) Observation Chart, and (D) Tests. (WD)
