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 eighth package, "Prescriptive Teaching for Improving Word Recognition Skills," is a companion for package three, "Diagnosis of Word Recognition Ability." This package provides a task-oriented guide to teaching competencies needed for the development of word recognition skills at both the beginning and intermediate levels of word analysis and decoding. The first two sections of the package discuss the acquisition of spoken words and of sight words. Section three provides information and suggestions for teaching word analysis through phonics. The fourth section presents other teaching techniques for developing word recognition. The section five describes the planning of a teaching program based on analysis of need. (TO)
