Reading Diagnosis--The Essential Ingredient in Teaching Every Child to Read.
Jan-Tausch, Evelyn
The need for training teachers in language abilities evaluation techniques that can be utilized in the practical classroom setting is stressed. The schema, described by Marion Monroe, which enables the teacher to chart each pupil's language pattern on one of five sequential levels in the areas of expressiveness, meaning, sentence structure, word meaning, and speech qualities is presented. Also, it is suggested that in "knowing the learner" the teacher must identify the stage of language development of the child, the emulative home models he might have, his motivation, the effectiveness of his sensory modalities, and other outside factors which affect his school performance. Five sequential steps in the reading process are listed. However, the distinction between the basic reading act and its application to situations requiring one's ability to think is made, and it is suggested that competent diagnosis would reveal that not further instruction in the process of reading but more pertinent learning experience in the development of concepts is needed. References are included. (CM)
