The Challenge in Canada.
King, Ethel M.
Reading teachers in Canada are concerned with a great many problems similar to those faced by their counterparts elsewhere, but they also deal with some problems which are uniquely their own. Out of its French and English history a new, distinctly Canadian, identity is emerging, and it is this identity which schools will serve. In the area of reading instruction, for example, there is a great opportunity to compare teaching reading in English to English speakers with teaching reading in French to French speakers and with the teaching of reading in the other official language to each of these groups. The number of other ethnic groups provides opportunities for teaching both official languages as second languages. Instructional and evaluational materials reflecting Canadian identity must be developed and efforts to adjust programs to individuals must be continued. In all, the challenges to reading teachers are great and varied. References are included. (MS)
