The Study Skills Component of the Wisconsin Design.
Kamm, Karlyn
Initial development of the list of skills and related behavioral objectives in the study skills area of The Wisconsin Design for Reading Skill Development began with an extensive search. As an organizational framework, the area was divided into three subareas: maps, graphs and tables, and reference skills. The professional literature, instructional materials, textbooks, and standardized tests relating to each of these subareas were surveyed and briefly summarized. The present approach has been to identify a few basic skills that are introduced early in the sequence and occur with more sophisticated variations at each successive level of development. Three basic skills have been identified in the subarea of maps: representation, location, and measurement. Six basic skills were identified for the subarea of graphs and tables: picture graphs, bar graphs, circle graphs, line graphs, and single and multicolumn tables and schedules. Seven basic skills were identified for reference skills: location, book skills, library use, reference materials, reading rate and purpose, organizing and evaluating materials, and work habits.
