Eberhart, Nancy A.; Lloyd, Margaret V.
Consisting of nine individualized inservice packets, the Teaching Teen Reading Series describes reading procedures applicable to instruction in all subjects in the elementary, middle, and secondary school. The first packet provides the teacher with guidelines for the selection and assessment of print materials. The packet discusses the following activities: (1) assessing reading competencies and interests of individual students within a given group; (2) determining the readability level of print materials; (3) analyzing print materials for readability factors which influence reading difficulty; (4) adapting content for students with varied levels of ability; and (5) using a standardized, objective approach in analyzing varied basic series of print materials for appropriateness. A self-corrective posttest, a glossary of terms, and a bibliography are also included for use by the teacher. (LL)
