Social Studies and Reading.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
This booklet was designed to acquaint social studies teachers with the meanings of some of the terms used in reading which are related to social studies, to acquaint these teachers with the reading skills that can be taught and/or reinforced through social studies activities, and to provide a source of a model of such activities. Activities are outlined for vocabulary development, comprehension skills, critical reading, and study skills. An appendix contains a group reading inventory in social studies, a description of a cloze technique for evaluating student reading comprehension, a copy of a SQ3R (survey, question, read, recite, and review) study method for content reading, a procedure for teaching outlining skills, and a Fry Readability Graph for determining the suitability of a book for a student.
