Individualizing Reading Instruction at the Junior High Level.
Kroenke, Richard G.
Because of great differences in reading ability among junior-high students, various forms of individualized reading instruction can be used successfully to the benefit of the students. Within a given class there are several ways the teacher can direct the reading activities to meet the individual needs of students. For example, total group reading allows for presentation of specific ideas or skills which students can share after reading and for full enjoyment and sharing of some types of literature, such as drama and poetry. Smaller groups can be used for developing sequential skills, with several students who are at approximately the same level helping each other. Small groups are also useful for students interested in the same topic or striving toward the same goal, whether the content be academic or nonacademic. Individual procedures are best for developing some skills, such as personal reading for pleasure, relaxation, or specific information. There are also various instructional skills packages designed to be used individually. Each of these approaches has its place in the classroom and can be used in all content areas. The key to successful use of the approaches, however, is careful teacher planning, administrating, and evaluating. References are included. (VJ)
