A Proposed Supplemental Reading Program for Reservation Indian Children in Elementary Schools of Northern Arizona.
The proposed supplemental reading program (separate from the basic reading program) is designed to assist the Indian child to master basic reading skills early. Materials should be selected which relate to concepts and things with which the Indian child can identify, thus expanding his world and views gradually. Supplemental reading sessions should be scheduled so that children will have freedom to read, independently or in small unstructured groups, stories of their own selection. The teacher's role should be primarily that of supervisor of activities and consultant to individuals. An outline of recommended activities and procedures for a two-week series of classes and criteria for selection of reading materials are presented in this monograph (which is funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act).
