Reading Aids through the Grades: A Guide to Materials and 501 Activities for Individualizing Reading Instruction. Fourth Edition.
Mueser, Anne Marie
This guide to materials and activities for individualized reading instruction is divided into five major sections. Section one presents a rationale for individualized, diagnostic-prescriptive reading instruction and some procedures for using this kind of instruction in the classroom. Section two is devoted to reading readiness activities, with subsections on visual discrimination, auditory discrimination, alphabet knowledge, vocabulary for reading, interest in books, story sense, and following directions. Section three, offering activities for basic reading skills activities, including many that can be used with older remedial readers, contains subsections on sight vocabulary, grapheme-phoneme relationships (phonics), word structure, easy things to read, and remediation of specific difficulties. Behavioral objectives precede each of the skills areas listed. Section four is devoted to advanced reading skills, such as vocabulary development, things to read and comprehend, reference, and survival reading skills. Section five includes an annotated listing of books and other published materials for use by or with children. An instructional planning index lists the 501 activities offered in the book numerically, indicating the type of grouping for which each activity is suited and whether the activity requires teacher presentation or special preparation of materials.
