Handbook for Individualizing Reading Instruction.
Marcus, Marie
This book is based on the following assumptions: there are recognized skills of decoding that are essential to the reading act; these skills can be identified by the knowledgeable reading teacher; there is a level of reading at which every child can best be taught; and reading comprehension is comprehension of the lexical and syntactical elements of language plus grapheme representations of that language. Over 5,000 primary and middle school children in grades 1-8 were diagnosed by 125 teachers in the three systems described. Part 1, "Diagnosis: Explanations and Interpretations," focuses on Fry's readability graph extended through preprimer level, sources of reading samples, oral reading samples, oral reading diagnostic forms, interpretation of oral reading diagnosis, and interpretation of oral reading comprehension tests. Part 2, "Oral Reading Samples with Comprehension Questions," focuses on samples from levels preprimer through grade 8. Part 3, "Diagnostic Samples for Listening Comprehension," also focuses on samples from levels preprimer through grade 8. Part 4 offers alternate reading samples with tests for oral reading and listening comprehension. Part 5 discusses planning the individualized instructional program. (TS)
