Indiana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Indianapolis. Div. of Reading Effectiveness.
As part of a series of manuals prepared for reading education workshops for parents and educators, this booklet focuses on developing reading comprehension skills. Divided into three sections, the first section of the booklet suggests activities for preschool through grade two children to enhance comprehension after a story is read and to strengthen recall, sorting, and sequencing skills. Other described activities utilize rhymes, commercial games, toys, and household items. Activities that parents can use with children in grades three through six to develop word meaning, literal and interpretive comprehension, and critical reading are presented in the second section. The last section suggests that parents of children in grades seven through twelve provide an atmosphere conducive to homework, discuss events covered in the media with their children, and make them aware of the many different kinds of reading in their environment. Several specific ways to help adolescents with homework are recommended. (AEA)
