The Usefulness of Children's Books in the Reading Program.
Bissett, Donald J.
Suggestions of potential uses for non-textbooks in classrooms are made according to the conviction that books should be a central portion of reading instruction. In readiness and initial reading instruction non-textbooks can be used to create a desire to read, to develop readiness skills, to develop reading skills associated with comprehension and word study, and to provide entry into literature. In later stages of reading instruction books can be used to practice reading skills, to individualize instruction, and to stimulate voluntary reading. Research into the use of books in these ways is surveyed, and the conclusion is reached that the teacher will find many specific ways to use non-textbooks in his classroom. References are included.
