How to Read a Book. Reading Aids Series.
Sargent, Eileen E.; And Others
This booklet, a title in the International Reading Association's Reading Aids series, is designed for the purpose of providing teachers with practical assistance for teaching reading. The contents include suggestions for elementary and secondary teachers to use in helping students learn how to study textbook material and how to read narrative material. The first part of the booklet concentrates on the study-type reading and explains how students can apply study techniques to their everyday assignments. The fundamental skills of reading are reviewed and purposes for reading are pointed out. The second part concerns the teaching of literature in the elementary school. This part of the booklet suggests how to call the pupil's attention to those aspects of literature that should enhance his understanding of the works and of the writers' craft so that he may possibly enjoy and appreciate the selections he reads. The chapter on reading narrative material in the secondary school focuses on the depths of understanding possible through teacher questions. (Author/WR)
