Reading, How To.
Kohl, Herbert
Reading skill can be acquired in a natural and informal manner and in a variety of settings ranging from the school to the streets. Anyone who wants to learn to read or to develop his reading ability can do so if the following conditions are satisfied: (1) A person who knows how to read and wants to share his knowledge is willing to help. (2) Basic materials--pencils, pens, and printed materials--are available. (3) The learner feels secure enough in the learning environment to make mistakes and ask questions. (4) The culture and background of the learner are respected and used. (5) The learner has reasonably intact senses and the ability to use some language. A description of the reading process, a wide variety of games and teaching techniques, lists of materials, and alternatives to standardized tests are provided, both as alternatives to more traditional classroom approaches to teaching reading and as aids for the nonprofessional tutor of reading.
