A First Step: Parts of A Book. How to Use a Textbook.
Panick, Merle, Comp.
Arranged in four parts, this guide presents techniques for helping junior high school students develop textbook skills. Following a pretest and checklist which determine student weaknesses in using title page, table of contents, index, visual aids, and print types (part 1), specific development strategies are provided in part 2. These are using cookbooks to teach index and table of contents skills, using history and general reading books to identify parts of a book, and using several textbooks to compare organization and presentation of materials. Part 3 contains 5 exercises which may be used for developing facility in using texts or for testing mastery of objectives. An evaluation test is provided in part 4. The guide concludes with a bibliography. (LP)
