Reading and the Individual.
Huus, Helen
The interaction between the individual and his reading was analyzed according to four major points, and the contributions that reading can make to his total development were discussed. The first major point discussed was purpose for reading. It was pointed out that teachers need to help each pupil see the need for reading in terms of his own aspirations and desires for both the present and future. Second, was the individual's acceptance of responsibility for his own learning. Teachers can help students recognize the small increments of growth in reading and other subjects that provide the motivation for continued study. The instructional aim is to make the students independent. Third, was the development of the thinking individual. This can only be accomplished if started in the early years. Fourth, was the necessity for self-renewal as a lifelong pursuit. The reading teacher has a fundamental role in helping individuals gain the skills that enable them to launch out in diverse directions to pursue self-renewal that will be most meaningful. References are included. (Author/CL)
