Reading Guidance in a Media Age.
Polette, Nancy; Hamlin, Marjorie
Chapters in this volume discuss the problems that teachers, parents, and librarians face in encouraging elementary school children to read and suggest ways to improve student motivation and reading ability in this age of mass media. "Sparking the Fuse for Literacy" defines the complex term "literacy," and examines the effects of the media on reading. "Home Is Where the Start Is" discusses parental roles in reading development, while "Library Lures to Literacy" suggests activities to stimulate student interest. Other techniques designed to enliven the reading process are provided in "Independent Study Programs in Literature,""From Page to Stage--Via Drama and Puppetry," and "Sharing Literature: The Audiovisual Experience.""Sound, Visuals, Action!" explores the development of a student production center using video and audio equipment. Conference planning and introducing authors to children through audiovisual media are discussed in "Students, Teachers, Librarians and Authors Get Together." In addition, each chapter contains a brief bibliography of children's books. (KS)
