A Model for Teaching Reading in the Middle School.
Merenbloom, Elliot Y.; Ritterhoff, Claire E.
The faculty of a middle school has constructed a model of a reading program, using components of other programs at other grade levels. The elements of the model include basal reading, teaching reading in the content areas, and individualized reading. The strengths of these components depend on teachers' understanding of learning theory and adolescent development. The flexibility of block-of-time scheduling and interdisciplinary team teaching afford an opportunity for each team of teachers to determine strengths and needs of their students, to plan and implement the reading program, and to evaluate and modify their instruction. (Five aspects of scheduling and nine steps for program implementation are discussed.) (RL)
