A Physical Education Teacher's Primer to Reading. Supplemental Material for RDG 467, RDG 480, RDG 507, and RDG 544.
This handbook was developed to help secondary school physical education teachers to encourage and promote reading in their programs. Guidelines and suggestions are offered on ways teachers can stimulate student reading by capitalizing upon interest in sport, and on ways teachers can reinforce vocabulary and comprehension skills. An introduction and the second section present reading and physical education goals and language coping skills. The third section presents sample interest and attitude inventories and evaluation tests which may be used to assess the reading abilities, interests, and attitudes of students. Guidelines for the selection of appropriate instructional materials are presented in the fourth section. Activities designed to improve vocabulary skills during discussions about physical education are described in the fifth section. Examples of vocabulary games are included. The sixth section describes successful techniques for improving reading comprehension. In the seventh section, alternative reading assignments for home study are discussed and suggestions are made for library work, reporting on sports television viewing, and critical analysis of sports coverage in newspapers. The eighth section describes techniques to stimulate reading, and the ninth section contains a bibliography of books on athletics and a listing of current periodicals on sports. (JD)
