Waterman, David C., Comp.; Gibbs, Vanita M., Comp.
Part of a series on selected aspects of curriculum development, this monograph contains reading conference proceedings that include an opening address by author Marguerite Henry in which she shares personal experiences in her evolution as a writer and six papers on remedial reading and language arts. The first paper describes the neurological impress method of remedial reading instruction and provides two plans for using the method. The second paper contains an annotated list of books of poems for young children, while the third stresses the importance of encouraging creativity in the language arts classroom. The fourth paper defines oral interpretation and suggests ways of applying it to a reading program and the fifth is a poet's personal list of things to avoid in teaching poetry. The last paper is a statement on the importance of listening skills that suggests ways to emphasize these skills in a language arts classroom. (AEA)
