A Curriculum in Listening Achievement.
Goolsby, Thomas M., Jr.
Specialists in child development have recommended that children be "read to" at an early age. Many children are read to, and some have been read to a great deal. However, much more is to be desired for some groups of the population and for some individuals. In recognition of the needs of these children this Curriculum in Listening Achievement was developed. It consists of twenty-four stories or passages that are of the caliber to elicit interest in the minds of preschool children. The ten questions that follow each story encompass the factors that are desiged to be gleaned from the story--details, purposes, organizations, and evaluations. This group of stories and questions comprise a curriculum for nonreaders designed to afford experience and training in obtaining from the printed page the kinds of factors necessary to be gained in all reading.
