Cleary, Donna McKee
This book provides secondary reading teachers with a practical guide for establishing a reading laboratory program. Written in conversational style, it contains diary-like comments and includes student responses to the activities described. The first section deals with the following topics: determining the physical aspects of a reading laboratory, pretesting students, establishing a teaching system, making assignments, and setting goals. The remaining three-fourths of the book provides activities for developing thinking and reading skills. Each activity, preceded by a list of the skills to be developed, involves the students in tasks that range from self-analysis quizzes and puzzle sheets to television viewing and poetry writing. (MAI)
