Instructional Responses to Reading Difficulties in the Secondary Grades: What the Teacher Can Do to Help the Student.
Harker, W. John
This paper discusses the need for remedial reading instruction at the secondary level and examines the situation facing the teacher and student. It is argued that the reading teacher working with secondary remedial students must help students acquire the requisite skills for successful learning through reading and meet the personal needs of students as well. The first step toward effective remediation lies in accurate and specific diagnosis of the particular reading difficulties students are experiencing. Once the difficulties have been diagnosed, treatment must be prescribed in direct relationship to the diagnosis. The skills the student is unable to perform during diagnosis, whether basic or applied, are the skills the student needs to be taught. The reading teacher must provide strict attention to diagnosis and treatment and must also seek to create a learning environment which answers the personal as well as the educational needs of the students.
