Suggestions for Using Supplementary Materials in the Individualization of Intensive Reading.
Busse, Bonnie B.
Suggestions for preparing supplementary materials for use in an individualized second language reading program are made. Newspaper sources can be used as a basis for constructing a learning activity packet with three phases. The prereading phase contains sound-symbol correspondence and vocabulary exercises, structure analysis and/or structure review programmed for self-instruction and selected to correspond to the student's language level. In the reading phase the student is required to read for information, for specific details, for interpretation or for critical analysis. The postreading phase consists of a structural and lexical analysis of the material. Postreading exercises are also used to help the student understand the context within which words are found. Filmstrips, motion pictures, and slide programs can also be assimilated into this program through preparation of scripts and correlated recordings. The film source itself is used as a supplement to increase student interest and motivation. Other sources of reading material suggested here are textbooks published and used in the foreign country, current magazines, business and government publications, and letters from student pen pals. These sources provide appropriate material for the three-phase format as well as insights into the culture being studied. (PMP)
