Selected Short Stories--RX for the Reluctant Reader.
Aaronson, Shirley
A means of adding another dimension to the learning experience, reading for enjoyment, is presented. The author, a reading teacher, found that the most successful approach for her in reaching reluctant readers was to expose students to selected short stories while simultaneously teaching reading skills and writing methods. The reasons for using short stories and a brief background on the writing of short stories are given. The author suggests that when using short stories the teacher must first introduce the readers to the intrinsic techniques and conventions that are part of short story writing as well as to the skills needed for reading them. References are included. (NH)
