Teacher's Handbook for Reading, Grades 3-6.
Adkins, Kathleen; Hamilton, Marlene
This teacher's handbook for computer assisted instruction (CAI) in reading describes a CAI program and presents sample lessons. The reading program for grades 3-6 consists of reading practice items designed to develop the student's skills in five areas: word analysis, vocabulary extension, comprehension of sentence structure, interpretation of written material, and development of study skills. The program is divided into two parts: (1) Basic Sentences begins at grade level 2.5 and ends at grade level 3.5. All the items in this section represent the simplest type of practice problem that can be presented in a contemporary CAI system. (2) The section on strands, which are sequences of related items, extends from grade level 3.5 through the sixth grade. There is one strand for each of the five areas covered by the program. All the material in the program is organized into classes, groups containing five items, or questions, of similar difficulty. Examples of introductory lessons, answer formats, and topic lists for each strand are presented. (WR)
