Guide to Materials for Reading Instruction. 1971 Edition.
Berridge, Wayne E., Comp.; Siedow, Mary D., Comp.
The Guide to Materials for Reading Instruction, 1971 Edition, updates earlier editions and includes approximately 2,300 entries of materials from 114 publishers. The guide is intended to keep educators informed about the constantly increasing supply of new materials available for the teaching of reading. Items appearing in the guide are described through a classification process; however, no evaluative judgments are made. Entries are organized by publishers in alphabetical order. The classification system includes the following: (1) the two major categories of basal or nonbasal; (2) the type of item, e.g., reader, workbook, audio aid; (3) reading difficulty level; (4) interest level; (5) setting of stories; (6) general skills developed; and (7) type of cover and binding. Three specialized indexes which provide easy access to information by sorting it into 240 subcategories are included. The indexes are titled "Interest Level Subdivided by Grade Level,""Skill Subdivided by Grade Level," and "Skill Subdivided by Interest Level." Finally, complete addresses for the contributing publishers are listed. (DH)
