The purpose of this guide is to provide seventh- and eighth-grade teachers with a variety of approaches to teaching reading. Chapter 1 provides the groundwork for a sequential skills reading program, dealing with materials, diagnosis of students' reading abilities, grouping, and procedures. The three chapters which follow recommend different, but complementary, approaches to teaching reading. The oral approach section includes articles for background information, a bibliography of selections for reading to students, and bibliographies of taped stories from state-adopted texts. The chapter on developing individualized reading programs includes suggestions for motivating student interest in stories; a bibliography of high interest, easy reading books; and recommendations for grouping. Suggestions for the humanities approach to enhance reading include enumeration of various themes treated in state-adopted texts, including specific behavioral objectives and lesson plans for examining these themes. The final chapter of the guide is concerned with techniques for evaluating the reading program. Also included is a bibliography of professional works on reading and teaching methods. (VJ)
