Howards, Melvin
Critical reading is viewed as requiring total involvement of the reader, and the classroom alive with questions, energy, and feelings is seen to facilitate such involvement. Critical reading involves looking at the world and its relationships of persons, places, things, and feelings. Teaching and encouraging environmental involvement from the first grade is emphasized. Additional emphasis is placed on experiences requiring a variety of human skills and sensitivity to seeking new relationships among objects and people. This sensitivity to new relationships along with the traditional critical reading skills should result in more effective reading. (RT)
