This teaching module is an overview which, together with the modular sequence that follows, is designed to enable participants to make an informed choice as to the appropriate approach for teaching reading to Spanish-speaking students. Upon completion of this module, participants should be able to (a) discuss current English reading programs for Spanish-speaking students, (b) identify components of the vernacular approach to teaching reading, (c) explain and evaluate the rationale and research for the vernacular approach to teaching reading, and (d) describe tentative outlines of the reading program which seems most feasible for Spanish-speaking students in the participant's own school situation. Participants also complete a preassessment test, choose tasks from a list of learning activities, and conclude the module with a postassessment test. (Readings entitled "An Overview of the Vernacular Approach to Teaching Reading to Spanish-Speaking Students,""Region I Literacy Lesson: A Bilingual Reading and Writing System for Speakers of Spanish as a First or Second Language,""Development of Pre-Reading Skills in a Second Language or Dialect," and "Bilingual Reading for Speakers of Spanish" are included.)
