This guide, designed for use by content area teachers at the junior and senior high school level in their work with students who have minor reading difficulties, contains a number of assessment techniques as well as a variety of approaches and suggestions for teaching. Included are: study guides that are developed around a topic for a specific content area and that are complete in themselves and ready for the teacher to use whenever appropriate; teaching ideas for increasing students' comprehension of content materials; and study skill materials and techniques for classroom instruction that apply to many content areas. Suggestions for individualizing reading assignments, a listing and description of available standardized tests, and a partial list of high-interest, easy-to-read paperbacks for secondary students are included. (See CS 000 173 and CS 000 174 for companion guides.) (Author/TO)
