Preparacion e Iniciacion de la Lectura en Espanol para Maestros de Programas Bilingues. Serie Tierra de Encanto (Preparation and Initiation of Reading in Spanish for Teachers of Bilingual Programs. Land of Enchantment Series).
New Mexico Univ., Albuquerque.
Part of the "Land of Enchantment" series of instructional materials, this very detailed teaching manual is designed to help teachers in bilingual programs prepare students to read Spanish. It contains suggestions for developing reading readiness skills and ways to teach a basic 30-word reading vocabulary. The reading program follows five steps: (1) children individually read their own utterances as written by the teacher; (2) children read to share their experiences with the group; (3) children read utterances dictated by the teacher based on common experiences; (4) they read materials especially prepared for their group; (5) the children go on to read other material. The first stage of development involves perception skills. Motor coordination, spatial realtionships, depth perception, and ability to perceive constants are explained, and activities for developing these skills are detailed. Language skills of naming and categorizing and the ability to understand and discriminate visual symbols are similarly treated. Workbook activities and lessons are included as students learn to recognize words both visually and aurally and to form them into sentences. Lessons and vocabulary are based on everyday experiences.
