Remedial Reading in the English Class.
Clarke, Edward J.
Connecticut English Journal, v3 n2 p8-15 Spr 1971
Remedial reading, or the teaching of the ability to decode and comprehend, taxes the skills and ingenuity of the English teacher. This problem, however, must be tackled on a day-to-day basis. Remedial reading programs can be made effective by utilizing the following techniques: a daily 5-minute quiz which embraces previously covered material; a brief period of dictation, which emphasizes accuracy; improvised lessons on verb tenses, using the students' daily notes; games; student-created booklets or other projects to be completed at home; at least three totally different tasks to be completed during every class period; exercises to develop basic skills, which is the most important phase of any reading program; and developing a cordial atmosphere where true learning can take place.
