Melnick, Susan L.
This training module provides participants with a theoretical overview of both process and skills of second-language reading, as well as practical classroom applications. Upon completion of the module, participants should be able to (a) differentiate between three categories of second-language readers, (b) explain developmental reading stages, (c) design a teaching activity to combat native-language interference, (d) design a teaching activity for a specific group of Puerto Rican Spanish-speakers based on one or more of six specific approaches to reading instruction, and (e) design a teaching activity for advanced-level reading. Participants complete a preassessment test, choose tasks from a list of alternatives, and conclude the module with a postassessment test. (PB)
