Inservice Reading Resource Kit and Project Reading Alert: Package 1--The Recognition of Readiness: Some Landmarks for Teachers (Beginning Reading Level).
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Reading Education.
Developed and coordinated by the Bureau of Reading Education of the New York State Education Department, Project Alert is a statewide inservice program to facilitate instituting or improving the diagnostic-prescriptive approach to reading instruction. As part of this program, a reading resource kit was prepared by the Bureau to give structure and direction to the projects in the local schools. This multimedia kit presently has six packages, with three more to be prepared. Each of the packages in the kit analyzes one skills topic in reading. This first package, "The Recognition of Readiness," is in three parts. The first part contains an outline of the skills necessary in the developmental process of learning to read. Part 2 is the accompanying teacher's workbook, with suggested tasks which may be used to detect strengths and weaknesses as well as to teach or to reinforce the readiness skills. And the last part furnishes samples of inventories, matching the outline of skills, which are useful to classroom teachers in their compilation of data for class records. An overview of Project Alert and the administrator's handbook, which describes the intended uses of the packages, are included with each package. (TO)
