Clinical Teacher Desired Pupil Behaviors: An Individualized Reading Curriculum.
Broska, Kenneth F.; And Others
The individualized reading curriculum guide contains conceptual and instructional models, instructional modules, and competency tests to be used by special education teachers for exceptional children. The curriculum is said to be a critical component of the model developed at Florida State University for trainee demonstration of competency in diagnosis and intervention during practicum experience. The conceptual model gives guidelines for reading competency, major competency tests, performance objectives and cluster competency tests. Reading competency is defined as integration of the four major skills of pre-reading, reading-phonetics, reading-linguistics, and reading comprehension. The criterion referenced competency tests are said to be helpful in diagnosis. Individualized instructional modules described include auditory and visual discirmination, memory, sequential memory, comprehension, and visual letter knowledge in the area of pre-reading; consonants and vowels in the area of reading-linguistics; and phonetics-linguistics, word and phrase meaning, syntax, sentence and paragraph meaning in the area of reading comprehension. Usually given for each area (or competency) is the model cluster (such as visual discrimination), module (such as discrimination of position), purpose, behavioral objectives, instructional resources/options/activities, and sample test items. Appended are lists of words and sentences to illustrate such aspects as rhyming, consonant blending, blends, prefixes, or sentence meaning.
