Comprehensive High School Reading Methods.
Shepherd, David L.
This book emphasizes specific and practical methods a teacher can use to fuse reading and content. Specific ideas and techniques are presented to show how instruction in the reading skills can be incorporated into almost all subject areas. The first chapter develops a rationale with a philosophical base. Next, techniques of diagnosis are discussed so that instruction can be adjusted to the specific needs of the learner. This is followed by a discussion of the skills the learner needs to read effectively, with subsequent discussion of classroom techniques. Ways to individualize the instruction are emphasized. The major subject areas are investigated to show a more detailed implementation of the fusion of content and reading skills. Finally, the characteristics of a total high school reading program are discussed. (Author/WR)
