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. The multimedia kit contains nine packages, each analyzing one skills topic in reading. This seventh package, "Reading Comprehension Related to Thinking Processes," provides teachers with information and activities to improve their competency in the art of questioning. The first section of the package introduces and reviews background information designed to help the teacher set or select objectives for reading comprehension as related to the thinking processes. Section two provides an outline of reading comprehension levels-skills. The third section correlates the skills of reading comprehension with the thinking processes. And section four provides activities and practices for developing question/response techniques. General directions for using the package are provided. (TO)
