Components of a Reading Program for the Mexican-American Child.
Arnold, Richard D.
Criteria applicable to all reading programs (and particularly to reading programs for Mexican-American children), regardless of philosophical or methodological differences among the various programs, are delineated. These criteria are listed and discussed in the form of the following nine questions: Has a good learning environment been established? Is appropriate and worthwhile content used? Are the readiness activities related to the reading materials? Is adequate expressive language participation provided? Is the program sequentially organized to provide for continuous growth? Is provision made for individual differences within the reading program? Is extensive training in areas of weaknesses available? Does the reading program provide for systematic evaluation of the child as well as the program itself? Are children assured successful reading experiences? It is suggested that if educators can affirmatively answer the questions posed, their reading program will very likely be an effective and successful one. (Author/CM)
