Reading and Writing in Junior High School Unified Studies (English-Social Studies).
Arnspiger, Robert H.; And Others
To enable junior high school students to relate the processes of reading, writing, and thinking through deliberate instruction and extensive classroom practice, a skills extension project was devised to develop original materials linked to the content areas of English and social studies. Another phase of the project provided for inservice training sessions for the teachers of those students involved in the project. Among the lesson materials used in the project were the district essay model which provided students with a set of preestablished criteria on which their writing would be evaluated, the cloze/maze model where students were required to fill in missing words in a selected textbook passage, and the paragraph building model where students were asked to write paragraphs about specific topics. (Appendixes include a copy of the district essay project and examples of cloze/maze reading passages.) (MAI)
