Blueprints for Better Reading: School Programs for Promoting Skill and Interest in Reading.
Cleary, Florence Damon
The major premise of this book is the reaffirmation of the concept that skill and interest in reading are interdependent and inseparable and that neither goal is reached unless both are pursued simultaneously. Part I identifies problems involved in improving reading guidance programs and describes the forces and factors that influence the reader and the understandings required of the person who guides the reading of youth. Part II delineates the kind of organization and schedules essential in promoting effective reading guidance programs in the schools, lists criteria for the selection and evaluation of learning materials, and describes a variety of directive and nondirective approaches to reading guidance. Part III describes programs, procedures, activities, and devices for teaching young people to read critically, to acquire and use information and knowledge, and to build values, appreciations, and the attendant skills that promote lifelong reading.
