A Guide to the Organization, Administration, and Implementation of a Content-Area Reading Program.
Memory, David; Smith, Elizabeth J.
This guide is designed to aid schools in establishing a school-wide or system-wide content-area reading program. Guidelines are offered for understanding the learner, and suggestions are given for assessing the needs, abilities, interests, and goals of students. Formulating instructional objectives and procedures includes planning approaches both for the whole class and for reading-ability groups. Suggestions for organizing material include locating books and other materials to supplement the textbook and developing and maintaining a materials resource file. The use of student tutors, adult volunteers, and aides is discussed. Areas specifically related to reading consultants include performing intensive diagnosis of readers severely disabled in content areas, giving special assistance within the school to content-area teachers, directing the content-area reading program within a school, providing in-service training in content-area reading, supervising and administering the system-wide content-area reading program, and evaluating content-area reading programs.
