The Wilson Manual for Implementing Individually Guided Reading, Janesville, Wisconsin.
Graper, Norman; And Others
This working paper discusses the utilization of the Prototypic System for Reading Instruction (PSRI) in the Wilson School at Janesville, Wisconsin. The core of the PSRI is a scope and sequence statement which outlines the skills normally taught in kindergarten to grade six: word attack, comprehension, study skills, self-directed reading, interpretive reading, and creative reading. A cumulative reading record folder provides the teachers with a permanent accounting instrument that can be used for the years the child is in school. A major component of the PSRI is the Wisconsin Expanding Inventory of Reading Development (WEIRD), a series of group assessment tests of reading behavior for the initial placement of children, which enabled the Wilson staff to identify what reading skills learners had, as well as those they needed. The two year experimental program implementing the PSRI for individually guided reading was termed successful by the teachers at Wilson School. (WR)
