Reading in the Content Area of Language Arts.
Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery. Div. of Instructional Services.
This handbook, designed for the language arts teacher, is based on the ideas that content area teachers must be responsible for specialized reading skills within their content areas and that reading instruction should not cease after the first six grades. Specific techniques and activities are suggested for developing the correlation between reading and the communicative skills of listening, speaking, and writing. An outline for a one-semester course in oral communication is also included. Word recognition, comprehension, and study skills are discussed as they apply to listening and speaking. There is a brief section on the appreciation of literature, and a teaching model, adaptable for grades one through twelve, is offered to illustrate how reading instruction can be combined with other elements of language arts.
