Junior-Senior High School Students and Reading: What Can Parents Do To Help?
Standal, Timothy C.
Intended for parents of secondary school students with normal reading proficiency, this guide is also useful for teachers in helping such students to develop study skills. The guide provides suggestions parents can use to help their children become more successful readers and describes three types of reading: for specific information, for concentrated study, and for pleasure. It offers tips to determine which type of reading a specific task requires and outlines steps for successful skimming (for specific information) and study (which requires an understanding of the material). The importance of specific study skills and an appropriate study environment are also discussed. (FL)
