Reading for Information and Enjoyment, Kindergarten through Grade Twelve. (Tentative).
Utah State Board of Education, Salt Lake City. Div. of General Education.
As a beginning point from which a teacher may use his own insights and understandings to launch, enrich, or strengthen a reading program, this tentative guide to reading offers some ideas, suggestions and guidelines that can aid the teacher in meeting the individual needs of his students. Activities and techniques are built upon a continuum so that the child can progress at his own rate and according to his diagnosed needs. Objectives and philosophies are first stated and serve as the foundation for the remaining chapters, which are given to (1) the teacher as a person, (2) the nature of the learner, (3) organization of the local reading program, (4) readiness, (5) reading for enjoyment, (6) reading in the content areas, (7) diagnosis, (8) word attack skills, (9) comprehension, (10) study skills, and (11) oral reading. The focus of each chapter is defined and subdivided into skills and concepts, behavior, prescription, and reference. Appendixes provide information on approaches to reading, reading tests, sources of help, and district sponsored materials, and a bibliography is included. (HS)
