Chapter two guides school personnel through a complete needs assessment, providing information on school reading program surveys, assessing parent and community attitudes toward reading, evaluating student reading attitudes and interests, choosing and using reading tests, and evaluating textbooks and reading materials. Chapter three discusses diagnostic/prescriptive teaching strategies, focusing on the directed reading lesson. Chapter four offers specific suggestions for choosing goals and objectives for use by the classroom teacher and the total school.
