Inservice Reading Resource Kit: Package 9--Reading in Content Areas; Developing Proficiency in the Reading/Study Skills for Content Teachers.
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 ninth package, "Developing Proficiency in the Reading/Study Skills for Content Teachers," suggests ways through which content teachers will be able to assess themselves as well as their students and, consequently, provide more personalized instructional programs. Listing 31 specific teacher tasks, the packet is divided into four sections. The first three discuss assessment of the teacher, of student needs, and of the program. Section four describes program planning for differentiating instruction. A bibliography of materials for the development of reading skills in the content areas is included. (TO)
