Zip Pak for Pre-Primer Reading Level.
Scott, Norval C., Comp.
The Zip Pak for the pre-primer reading level was developed for use with migrant Mexican American children who have reading deficiencies. The area of failure with these children has not been with the visual discrimination involved in decoding, but with the interpretation of the material to be decoded. Therefore, the 5 lessons in this student workbook aim to prepare the children's way of thinking for the more abstract and inferential ideas encountered in the educational process. Goals of the lessons 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. The 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.
