The Reading Curriculum.
Melnik, Amelia; Merritt, John
Facets of the reading curriculum (what is to be taught, how reading competence may be developed, and how the teacher can evaluate reading proficiency) are discussed in this volume, the purpose of which is to increase the reader's knowledge of the scope, content, and process of reading instruction and its influence on the quality of talking, thinking, and learning in the classroom. Part one presents an overview of procedural policies, content areas, instructional media, and various patterns of organization which affect the total school reading program. Part two examines various approaches to the teaching of reading and the content of reading instruction. Part three acquaints the reader with diagnostic teaching principles and procedures which fuse diagnosis and instruction into a single ongoing process. And part four concludes the survey of the reading curriculum with an examination of various procedures and instruments designed to assess the readability of printed materials, individual levels of reading development, effectiveness of reading programs, and characteristics of effective teaching of reading.
