Every Teacher a Teacher of Reading--For Only a Week.
Dramer, Dan
This paper explains the goals of Operation READS (Reading Embracing All Disciplines at Sewanhaka) in helping secondary school subject area teachers develop a favorable attitude toward reading. The program's primary student objective is the acquisition of basic textbook reading skills. Operation READS is an intensive, one week mobilization of all aspects of school life which simultaneously present reading instruction and subject matter teaching. Subject area teachers and reading specialists working together have developed materials which show junior high students that they can read faster and understand and retain more from their books when they apply basic study techniques such as the SQ3R method. The program has been extensively evaluated through performance criteria and teacher questionnaires. All indications are that the program has been successful. (Author/WR)
