How To Select Elementary Reading Programs.
Waugh, Ruth; And Others
Designed to simplify the task of selecting the right reading materials for students, this guide provides a method for structuring the work of textbook selection committees. It guides committees through a six-step process involving answering the following increasingly specific questions: what is the socioeconomic background of the students? What do the students need to be taught? Who are the resource people available, and how will they be used? Which books meet our general needs? Do the component parts of the program assist with classroom organization? Which books should we adopt? For each step of the process, the guide provides a rationale for taking the step, outlines procedures for obtaining the necessary information, and includes worksheets to be used in collecting and evaluating data.
