Merritt, John E.
This paper focuses on ways of improving reading by developing the intermediate skills and the higher order comprehension skills in reading. The paper consists of four sections: "Intermediate Skills and Context Cues" discusses the use of the cloze procedure for improving comprehension skills and for analyzing words in terms of class membership, comparison or contrast, explanatory addition, and synonym or restatement; "Comprehension Skills and Conceptual Structures" discusses the three comprehension skills of literal comprehension, reorganization, and reading for pleasure in relation to establishing purposes for reading; "Some General Points" suggests how the teacher can conserve time by concentrating on one technique at a time; and "Conclusions" emphasizes that the teacher should develop an increasing understanding of the nature of the student's reading abilities that need to be developed.
