Adapting ECRI to a Basal Text.
Purnell, Betty; Hays, Susan
As this report explains, the Exemplary Center for Reading Instruction (ECRI) has developed a reading program that teaches 16 skills involved in reading, spelling, listening, thinking, and writing. Daily records are kept of each child's progress. This report shows how the ECRI program can be adapted for use with a basal text. It provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for preparing mastery lists of basal and nonbasal vocabulary words, making word and review cards, planning lessons that use the word cards to teach specific skills, making instructional wall charts, and preparing skills and spelling practice worksheets. Illustrations accompany the descriptions of the materials. (GW)
