Dunne, Hope W.
The purpose of this book is to give classroom teachers some guidelines for making learning to read a more meaningful experience for each child. The art of pacing and challenging a child through inductive teaching is detailed and techniques for guiding the child in self-selection and planning his time are described. Unit teaching in a self-contained classroom provides the framework. The topics discussed in the seven chapters are: "Identifying the Problem,""Success for Each Child--Starting the First Day of School,""Nongraded Teaching in a Self-Contained Classroom,""Unit Teaching Detailed,""Unstructuring in a First-Grade Teacher,""One Answer Versus Thinking," and "Using the Laboratory Experience Method with the Disadvantaged Child."
