Reading in the Responsive Education Program. Revised.
Taylor, JoEllyn; And Others
Intended to enable teachers and other school staff members to implement the Responsive Reading Program, a comprehension-centered program for kindergarten to third grade children, this guide is divided into a brief introduction and five major sections. The second chapter discusses the theoretical background of the program and the skills or strategies needed in reading, the third chapter describes how teachers implement the program, and the fourth outlines ways of assessing children's present abilities as a basis for planning appropriate activities. The fifth chapter gives examples of suggested classroom activities for four levels: the prereading learner, the beginning reader, the developing reader, and the independent reader; while the sixth chapter describes methods for internal and external assessment of the program. The appendixes are abstracts of three articles: "The Challenge of Individualized Reading Instruction," by Lyman C. Hunt, Jr.; "The Role of Prediction," by Frank Smith; and "Making Sense: The Basic Skill in Reading," by JoEllyn Taylor. (MM)
