Wilmington Reading Curriculum: A Guide to Teaching Reading 4-6.
Wilmington Public Schools, MA.
This curriculum guide is based on the belief that a reading program should help students develop the skills needed to read with ease and satisfaction, learn to use reading as a tool for learning, and develop an appreciation of literature and a lifelong interest in reading. Chapters deal with study skills, reading in the content areas, literature, critical reading, and creative reading. Each chapter presents an overview of the skill area dealt with and suggests activities for helping students develop desired skills. The final two chapters describe strategies for providing for individual needs and suggest methods for assessing student reading performance and attitudes. Appendixes provide an index to curriculum materials, list word recognition and comprehension skills for five sequential levels, and offer suggestions for guiding silent reading, determining readability of reading materials, creating "activity boxes" for independent learning, planning a year-long "Use of Reading Program," and determining pupils' reading levels. A bibliography of materials that aid in teaching reading skills and literature appreciation is included. (GW)
