As part of a continuing effort by the Indiana Department of Public Instruction to share practical, easy-to-implement reading techniques, this booklet offers a collection of teaching activities under various topics related to reading. Of the eight sections in the booklet, four deal with writing, because an anticipated outgrowth of improved skill in writing is the improvement of reading ability. The first of these sections offers class activities and topics for writing, while the next three sections discuss using media as a springboard to writing, centering on children's literature, and moving from thought to print in the communication process. The last four sections of the booklet offer activities for vocabulary development, motivation techniques for "turning on the turned-off reader," questioning techniques for improving student comprehension, and a discussion of the concept of readability.
