Reading: The Champaign Approach--The Teacher as the Key.
Champaign Community Unit School District 4, IL.
The philosophy of this reading program is to guide all children to become independent readers and to stimulate them to build an abiding interest in reading a variety of materials on a wide range of topics. Essentially a diagnostic-prescriptive approach, the program instructs teachers in determining children's performance levels or potential reading levels, their reading levels for purposes of grouping, and their most appropriate mode of learning. The assessment tools available in the district are described. The remainder of the program discusses the teacher's role and responsibilities in the teaching of reading, evaluation of progress, and selection of materials. Primary and intermediate grade reading objectives and a criterion-referenced reading profile test are included. Comparative information on each of the reading series available in the district at each grade level is also provided. (TO)
