Trade and Industrial Reading Strategies. 1980 Vocational Reading Series.
Thornton, L. Jay; And Others
Trade and Industrial Reading Strategies is one of five instructional guides in the Reading Strategies in Vocational Education Series. Developed to assist teachers working with students considered disadvantaged because of reading deficiency, the guide contains several strategies, suitable for adaptation, specifically related to trade and industrial education. Each of six sections into which the guide is divided contains informational material and extensive examples and exercises. Section 1 concerns readability and gives procedures and guidelines for collecting samples and how many to collect. Section 2 briefly describes the Cloze procedure and its usefulness as a reading test and as a teaching technique for the theory of case grammar. The following four sections each present a set of important reading skills: Basic Vocabulary Skills, Paragraph Comprehension, SQ4R (Survey, Question, Read, Record, Recite, Review), and Recognizing and Recording Complex Information. Each skill is broken down into segments requiring no more than 5-10 minutes of class time every other day. Homework utilizes text assignments normally required. Following individual skill discussions is the part, Textbook Application, where each skill is applied to the course's own textbook. Each section ends with additional suggestions for teaching the new skills. (A time frame is provided for teaching the skills.) (YLB)
