Reading Instruction in the Entire Curriculum.
The author argues that reading instruction could be dramatically improved by making it an integral part of the total curriculum, rather than a subject taught in isolation from the content areas. After reviewing data on reading failure and illiteracy, particular causes of poor reading instruction are discussed. Adequate instruction will come only when reading becomes a responsibility of all teachers, with each guiding the reading/thinking process as it affects their own subject areas. Examples are given of the reading/thinking skills required in specific subject areas. (AA)
