Reading the Environment: An Approach to Language and Concept Development.
Marturano, Arlene
Reporting on the development, design, and implementation of an approach for teaching reading to rural black children in the intermediate grades, this paper is organized in three sections that reflect the framework of the project. The first section discusses the delineation of the theoretical framework for teaching reading, resulting in a rationale comprised of seven basic premises about child development, cognitive development, and reading as a cognitive process. The second section reviews and interprets the literature and educational theory associated with these seven premises, focusing on the ideas of educational theorists like Piaget who have proposed some type of information processing model of the mind. The third section is an overview of the classroom program, illustrating how phenomena within the everyday life experience of the child can become the reading content for an intermediate grade "environmental reading program."
