Preparing to Assist Black Children in the Reading Act.
Scales, Alice M.
The reading act and the teaching of black children should not be treated as incidental by either white or black educators. The role of teacher-training institutions should be to instruct future teachers in the reading processes, reading readiness stages, basal reading programs, formal and informal reading tests, black dialects, reading approaches, and cultural backgrounds and heritage. The duties of the administrator and teacher should include proper assessment of children and preplanned instruction. The black community should also be involved, exploring specific criteria, such as tests which have a direct bearing upon black children's reading achievement, or determining whether there is any action parents should take to help children improve their reading skills.
