Smuggling Language into the Teaching of Reading.
Heilman, Arthur W.; Holmes, Elizabeth Ann
Techniques and procedures for teaching reading as a meaning-making, language-oriented process are the focus of this book. The underlying premise is that children are taught to read so that they have an important tool for developing and expanding concepts. In order to accomplish this aim, children must be exposed to the precision and ambiguities of language and to worthwhile reading matter as they learn the mechanics of reading. They must understand why it is important that they learn to read, not merely learn the fundamentals of how to read. Each chapter, relating to one aspect of this development, includes a variety of activities and suggestions for procedures to be used to enhance a love of language and of reading. Chapter topics include intonation, word meaning, critical reading, reading and writing, and study skills. (TO)
