Elementary Reading Today: Selected Articles.
Miller, Wilma H.
This book of reading is a compilation of periodical articles, most of which have been published in the last five years. Part 1 contains three articles which relate to the process of reading. Part 2 discusses reading readiness development at home and at school. Two articles discuss aspects of the home environment which best help prepare children to achieve success in beginning reading, and one article looks at reading readiness development in kindergarten. Part 3 is composed of a number of articles which discuss the various elementary reading approaches. The methodology of the language-experience and basal reader approaches is illustrated in five articles. Five other articles are related to individualized reading and how it can be used in conjunction with other reading approaches. Part 4, "Reading Skills and Grouping for Individual Differences," discusses phonics, structural analysis, context clues, vocabulary, comprehension, critical reading, and content reading. Part 5 is devoted to articles on the diagnosis and remediation of reading difficulties in the elementary school and to articles on teaching culturally disadvantaged children and disabled readers.
