Miller-Unruh Reading Workshop Highlights, 1970-1971.
Acosta, Robert, Comp.; Lindsay, Marie R., Comp.
In 1965 the Miller-Unruh Act enabled the Bureau of Elementary and Secondary Education to provide inservice conferences and workshops for specialist teachers to aid in the prevention and correction of reading difficulties for pupils in grades 1, 2, and 3, and to move toward getting the specialist "out of the remedial room and into the classroom." This booklet presents important points made by those invited to participate as main speakers at each of the regional workshops held in California during 1970-71. It also presents ideas on methods and instructional techniques for supplementing reading instruction by specialist teachers who participated as session leaders. Topics for the keynote addresses include: (1) the role of Miller-Unruh specialists in a total reading program, (2) establishing meaningful communication as leadership function, (3) basic learning modes, (4) individualized reading instruction, (5) the use of poetry for reading instruction, (6) stimulating interest in reading through creative dramatics, and (7) positive uses and supplementation of state testing. Specialist teachers' suggestions are grouped under three major headings: identifying and compensating children's needs; developing listening, speaking, writing, and reading skills; and implementing and evaluating Miller-Unruh programs.
