Teaching Reading through Motor Learning.
Sullivan, Dorothy D.; Humphrey, James H.
Based on a foundation of research and theory, this book presents a case for the inclusion of motor learning activities in the reading curriculum. Chapter one introduces the concept generally, while chapter two provides a theoretical basis for the approach, along with some exploratory evidence to support it. Chapter three discusses some motor aspects of the reading process. Chapter four is concerned with perceptual motor development skills, programs, and media. Chapters five through eight are concerned with education through the physical. These chapters contain detailed information on and examples of how to help children with the various important aspects of reading. The focus is on developing reading skills through motor activity, motor-oriented reading content, learning to read through creative movement, and motor activity as it relates to diagnosis and diagnostic teaching in reading.
