Making Sense: Reading Comprehension Improved through Categorizing. Reading Aid Series.
Based on the premise that grouping of ideas and experiences must be understood if efficient reading is to take place, this book is directed particularly to classroom and reading teachers for grades six, seven, and eight. It attempts to indicate possible ways of isolating, identifying, using, and integrating all of the elements necessary for understanding the basic structure of ideas. Most of the chapters deal with categorizing skills, translating categories into paragraphs or the reverse, and organizing items within paragraphs or paragraphs within larger units, in an attempt to aid students in understanding the hierarchical organization of ideas used in reading and writing. The suggestions given are intended as takeoff points for developing understanding of more complex relationships. (LL)
