Monster Moose Reading.
Finney, Frank
Monster Moose (MM) Reading is a program specifically aimed at improving children's language, beginning reading, and self-concept development through the creation and utilization of student-authored reading materials which feature a series of wordless picture books about a magical moose. The MM Program is based on the following general principles of learning: that language, reading, and thinking are interdependent; that children learn new language best if they feel the need for verbal communication; that children learn new language best when it is associated with something they already know or with something they can see or feel; and that children will learn new language best when it is heard and used often. In this document, teaching techniques are suggested in order to help the teacher facilitate listening, develop speaking, aid writing, and promote reading. Ten story outlines for the teacher to elaborate upon and narrate to the class are included. (LL)
