Reading - French, Second Language. Introductory to Senior Levels. Youth Education: Teaching GUide No. 42.
Nova Scotia Dept. of Education, Halifax.
The curriculum guide for Nova Scotia's advanced level reading course in French as a second language focuses on assisting the students in transfering first language reading skills to the second language and regulating instruction so that neither the pace nor the difficulty level cause student frustration. The program is structured to bring students through a continuum consisting of six stages in reading development: (1) introductory (prereading, recognition reading, and sound/symbol decoding); (2) familiarization; (3) learning techniques and reading for meaning; (4) practice; (5) expansion; and (6) autonomy. A section of the guide is dedicated to each of these stages, outlining the characteristics, the prescribed linguistic content, and classroom instructional techniques for each stage. A list of suggested classroom resource materials for each of the six stages and a bibliography are appended. (MSE)
