Teaching Reading in Vocational Education.
Perine, Maxine H.
High school teachers can contribute greatly to reading instruction by helping students apply to specific content those reading skills learned in earlier years, by strengthening students' basic skills, and by teaching the special reading skills peculiar to a subject area. Vocational education teachers confront many secondary students who show interest and potential in vocational areas but who have not attained reading levels high enough to succeed. Through a well-devised plan, a vocational education teacher can focus on content and at the same time strengthen abilities in word recognition, vocabulary meaning, comprehension, and study skills. Such a plan should include: (1) background and motivation for reading, (2) study of difficult vocabulary terms, (3) purpose for reading material, (4) reading the selection, (5) discussion, and (6) application and extension of skills. Other supplementary kinds of reading assistance are the SQ3R procedure (survey, question, read, recite, and review) and the process and content guides described by R. Karlin in "Teaching Reading in High School." (AEA)
