Zip Pak for Pre-Primer Reading Level (Teacher's Manual).
Scott, Norval C., Comp.
The Zip Pak for the pre-primer reading level was developed for use with migrant Mexican American children with reading deficiencies. Its goals are to: (1) increase and widen the child's ability to be selective in choosing his information and selecting information pertinent to a purpose; and (2) improve the child's ability to make decisions, categorize, and acquire fluency in stating preferences. Behavioral objectives are that the child will: (1) select 10% more pairs of pictures in a sorting task on the posttest than on the pre-test; (2) provide 10% more taxonomic (categorical) labels in a sorting task on the posttest than on the pre-test; (3) provide 10% more inferential labels in a sorting task on the posttest than on the pre-test; and (4) provide 10% more labels of any kind in a sorting task on the posttest than on the pre-test. The Sigel Test for Cognitive Styles in Categorization is used to provide an instant profile of the way each child prefers to organize what he sees. This teacher's manual presents: (1) the directions for administering, scoring, and interpreting the Sigel Test for Cognitive Styles in Categorization, (2) 5 lesson plans, and (3) 11 suggestions for additional activities.
