A Paradigm of Two Secondary Reading Programs.
Sucher, Floyd
Much research and experimentation done in the past 10 years has drawn attention to secondary reading programs. Such programs are now being evolved for the schools. A segment of two secondary reading programs, the content area reading phase. is described here. These programs are examples of attempts to implement integrated instruction and application of secondary reading into a total junior and senior high school curriculum. A skills program (for seventh graders in a Provo, Utah, junior high) that is built around the three major topics of developmental reading skills, study habits and skills, and research skills is discussed. The second segment is from a program, introduced into a Utah senior high school, that attempts to accommodate a wide range of reading abilities and interests in the student body. The teachers are assisted in the use of techniques which will adjust their programs to their students' abilities. The author predicts that with careful evaluation, refinement, and further development, secondary reading will soon be a part of the total secondary curriculum. Sample materials are included. (NH)
