Values Strategies in the Teaching of Reading.
Sinatra, Richard; Kinsler, Karen Taber
Values clarification strategies or activities in which children explore, list, order, and code their experiences and thoughts, combined with language experience techniques, can provide meaningful reading situations. Values strategies function as affective mobilizers to bring a child's attitudes and emotions into interaction with learning materials, thus strengthening memory for the learning experience. The child's own language is also directly tied to experience. Some educators have urged that the child's reading experiences be made an extension of natural language learning. If materials are chosen that broaden or coincide with the needs and interests of the child, then the child is likely to accept reading as a worthwhile venture. A teacher of reading can select a values strategy to engage a child in a theme, then use the technique of language experience to expand further meaningfulness of this theme with reading growth. (MKM)
