Remedial Reading in the Secondary School.
Cushenbery, Donald C.
Developed for secondary school teachers who are looking for effective ways to develop and extend the reading skills of students, this handbook provides the teacher with a description of programs, tested lessons, and methods used. It also includes suggestions for (1) understanding the comprehension skills and the kinds of assignments necessary for effective reading comprehension, (2) understanding the nature of study skills and how activities can be planned to strengthen these abilities, (3) nurturing literary interests to help students become lifetime readers, (4) motivating students to employ a multiple approach to word attack, and (5) building reading skills for disadvantaged students. Each of the ten chapters details procedures that can be used and shows the educator how to analyze reading tests to determine the reading status of all pupils and how to provide each pupil with the appropriate reading materials. Appended are lists of instructional materials, audiovisual devices and media, periodicals for youth, an annotated professional book list for teachers, a professional journal list for teachers, and a list of publishers and their addresses.
