Pathway to Critical Reading.
Taschow, H. G.
Critical reading is a continuous process, only beginning in the first grade, which necessitates carefully planned training by qualified teachers. By building upon the student's competence in literal reading, interpretation, evaluation, integration of facts, accurate recall, and reorganization of materials, the teacher can develop the student's questioning attitudes to a point where the student will be able to evaluate his ideas against those presented, bringing forth a different and/or new understanding of the subject matter. Two samples for grade one and grade eleven are given which illustrate the workability of this approach. However, to foster the student's ability to read critically, to improve and refine this ability, and to encourage the student to exercise this ability, the teacher must be well versed in the art of critical reading himself. (A reference list is included.) (HS)
