High Interest Reading Kit. Teacher's Manual.
Redman, Margaret C.; And Others
This teacher's manual is designed to accompany a reading kit intended to provide high interest reading materials for late adolescent and adult elementary-level readers (see note). Introductory information discusses the development of the reading exercises from unedited stories dictated by students (the Learning Experience Approach) and organization and use of the five accompanying kits. Reading exercises divided into five categories according to difficulty are available as kits: fourth-grade-and-below readability, approximately fifth-grade readability, approximately sixth-to-eighth-grade readability, eighth-grade-and-above readability, and play reading suitable for all levels. Each exercise includes a "Three Level Guide" section with fifteen true-false questions at the literal, interpretive, and applied levels. An Adult Informal Reading Inventory (AIRI) to determine a student's reading ability and comprehension is also included in the teacher's manual. Two copies of a dictated story are provided with comprehension questions found on the teacher's, but not student's copy. Student evaluation and score interpretation are outlined. Appendixes provide suggestions for supplementary activities and an answer key for questions in all the kits. (YLB)
