Learning to Read and Reading to Learn: An Approach to a System of Literacy Instruction.
A comprehensive system of literacy instruction is outlined in this monograph. The system involves two stages--learning to read and reading to learn (reading to get information from printed materials)--which are integrated through two overlapping teaching spirals organized around a chosen subject matter theme. The nine chapters of the monograph provide an introduction to the system and discuss the following topics: the integration of subject matter with literacy training; the development of subject matter content for literacy courses; the teaching of reading, writing, and arithmetic in the first spiral; the role of the workbook and the instructor's guide in literacy instruction; literacy training in the second spiral, in which reading to learn is stressed; and the problems of evaluating instructional materials for a literacy program.
