Teaching Mental Pictures: A Proposal Aimed at Making Reading More Meaningful.
Beutler, Rosetta
A method of reading instruction is discussed in this paper. By helping the child to develop mental pictures of what he reads he can better retain the meaning of the sentence as he deciphers the more difficult words. The non-reader can lose the essence of a sentence because he may become too involved in decoding the sentence. A procedure on how to assist children in developing mental pictures is suggested and could be adapted for various grade levels. The use of mental picture could be used in all subject areas once the children have become accustomed to making them. (WR)
