Forty States Innovative to Improve School Reading Programs.
Fallon, Berlie J., Ed.; Filgo, Dorothy J., Ed.
Seventy-five innovative reading practices, each representing a new approach for the implementing school system, are described in this book with the intention to serve as stimulators to experimentation. These practices are organized under six sections: readiness and beginning reading, elementary level, junior high level, high school level, special and remedial, and all-level practices. Within each of the six sections, similar reading innovations are reported together. The reports generally describe the objectives, planning, implementation, and evaluation of each innovative program. A table of descriptor terms is included to provide a catalogued glossary of terms used by the school systems. The appendixes present sources of information on diagnostic instruments; machines, films, and other hardware; workbooks and kits; professional books for teachers; and publishers and their addresses.
