The Guided Reading Procedures: A Strategy for Improving Unaided Recall and for Advancing an Attitude of Comprehension Accuracy.
Manzo, Anthony V.
This paper focuses on the Guided Reading Procedure (GRP) as a means of improving a literal level skill (unaided recall) and an attitudinal factor (accuracy in comprehension). Also discussed are some features of the GRP which suggest its possible value for fostering such other attitudinal and higher order skills as "recognizing implicit questions,""self-correction," and organization. The GRP, a simple group or individual procedure that can be used from primary school through college, consists of the following steps: An individual or a group is asked to read (or listen to) a selection, the optimal length of which varies with the teaching purpose. Prior to reading, the students are told to read and remember all that they can. After the reading is completed the teacher records the information recalled in whatever fashion it is remembered. The students are then encouraged to recognize incomplete information and other inconsistencies, to go back and review the passage, and to organize remembrances into something resembling an outline. The last two steps are optional and are concerned with medium-term memory (24-48 hours later) and long-term memory. (WR)
