Developing Reading Skills through Subject Areas; A Handbook for Secondary School Educators.
Schain, Robert L., Ed.; And Others
This handbook includes materials developed by faculty members of George W. Wingate High School in a program to improve reading skills in subject area classes. These materials include lesson plans and various kinds of worksheets. Although the lessons involve many content areas, they are divided into these reading skill subject areas; vocabulary building, finding details, finding the main idea, making inferences, following directions, and other study skills. The premise of this handbook is that as a subject teacher plans and develops a lesson, certain reading skills are involved quite naturally, thereby providing excellent opportunities to build and strengthen those reading skills. The teaching guide was developed as a total school effort to raise student reading levels to the eighth grade level required by New York City for graduations from high school (MKM)
