Reading Connections.
DeGuise, Richard A.
Success in the study of literature depends on the student's ability to establish connections between word and object, between words and phrases, and between memorable experiences in all fields of learning and the reading of literature, which is interdisciplinary by nature. In understanding a literary work, a reader must make affective memory associations for good comprehension and enjoyment. The literature teacher must find ways to help students establish their own hierarchies of knowledge, making the necessary connections and association for reading success. Four procedures comprise the method of training students in effective silent reading: phrasing and antiverbalization, speed training and recall, pacers and focus of attention, and recap and recall (patterns of meaning). (A series of developmental exercises is included.) (DF)
