Can the English Teacher and the Reading Specialist Ride Together with "Shane" on the Wide Range of Reading Disabilities?
Beyer, Walter; Lichtenstein, Jack
Working in cooperation with reading specialists, English teachers designed a program to meet the needs of a class of seventh graders with reading disabilities. The reading specialist role was expanded from that of small consultant to include actual classroom instructor. The teaching of literature and reading skills was facilitated through the systematic development of study guides and cooperative learning experiences. Using the novel "Shane," an instructional framework was created to teach vocabulary development and comprehension. The combination of the efforts of the English teacher and the continued individual attention of the reading specialist offered the students with a serious reading problem their best chance to improve.
