Rationale and Overview of the Wisconsin Design.
Otto, Wayne
The Wisconsin Design for Reading Skill Development is a skill-centered approach to reading instruction in the elementary school. Skills in six areas have been identified: word attack, comprehension, study skills, self-directed reading, interpretive reading, and creative reading. The Design provides behavioral objectives and criterion-referenced tests for each skill. The results of the machine-scored tests indicate the skill strengths and deficits of each child. Resources including published materials and teacher-directed activities are also keyed to each skill. A management system in the form of a profile card provides a continuous record of each child's skill development and permits flexible grouping on the basis of skill needs. The intent of the Design is to provide individualized skill instruction as well as a continuous progress approach to reading. The Design is in its second year of field testing. (Author/AW)
