Helping Students Improve Reading Skills in Selected Content Areas.
Levy, Jerome M.; And Others
There are not nearly enough reading specialists to meet the needs of the large number of students with reading deficiencies. In order to determine the effectiveness of training teachers in content areas to play an active role in helping students improve their reading skills, 15 secondary level teachers representing the fields of mathematics, science, social studies, and technology received instruction on the nature, measurement, and treatment of students with reading skill problems. These teachers then integrated desired teaching strategies and procedures with their ongoing instruction of subject content. The reading skill levels of their students were tested prior to the application of project-related teaching procedures and then were retested after 18 weeks. Test results and evaluations by project teachers indicated that content area teachers can make a significant contribution to helping students improve their reading skills. (Items in the appendix include a teacher training manual, slide-tapes used to instruct teachers, record keeping forms, test data from project classes, evaluative instruments, and comments by project teachers.)
