Inservice Reading Resource Kit and Project Reading Alert: Package 6--How to Judge Readability of Books (Tape Transcript and Student's Workbook).
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. "How to Judge Readability of Books," the sixth package, describes one method for estimating the readability of a book, the Fry Readability Graph. The steps needed to learn to use the graph are presented, accompanied by several exercises to be performed. An overview of Project Alert and the administrator's handbook, which describes the intended uses of the packages, are included with each package. (TO)
