The Need to Read: Strategies for Teaching Reading as a Vocational Skill. The "You Need to Read" Project.
Wolfe, Patricia
Combining a student workbook and a teacher's guide, this booklet is designed to help students reading at the sixth grade level develop their ability to (1) find facts quickly, (2) locate main ideas and supporting information, (3) remember what was read, (4) determine a word's meaning from context, and (5) decide when to use specialized reading skills such as SQ3R. It also helps students learn to use their textbooks wisely and listen intelligently. The booklet's first section, the student workbook, is divided into 10 lessons, each of which is accompanied by exercises that may be completed individually or as a class. The second section of the booklet, the teacher's guide, includes strategies for presenting the material, answers to student exercises, and additional assignments. The booklet concludes with guidelines for a student-developed tape recording project. It suggests that the students themselves, their peers, and the larger community will benefit from student recordings of general interest and vocational texts and from the creation of an oral history of the area through students' recorded interviews with senior members of the community.
