Reading Correction Kit.
Miller, Wilma H.
This kit for teachers is designed to help students at the elementary and secondary levels improve their reading skills. The kit is divided into twelve sections. The first section describes in detail how to best put the materials found in this aid to use. Sections two through six are devoted to the word-recognition techniques of sight word knowledge, phonetic analysis, structural analysis, context clue usage, and dictionary usage. In each section the characteristics of a word-recognition skill and directions on how to improve this skill at both the elementary and secondary school levels are given. Section seven describes how to correct weaknesses in meaning vocabulary knowledge. Sections eight through eleven deal with correcting difficulties at the various levels of comprehension. These chapters are devoted to improving skills in literal comprehension, interpretive comprehension, critical reading, and creative reading. The twelfth section is devoted to correcting difficulties in the various study skills. Each chapter also contains a series of worksheets related to specific reading skills. (TS)
