Proficiency-Based Instruction in Reading: A Teacher Education Module. Applications Packet.
Phillips, June K.
A packet of materials designed for an inservice course for teachers of reading in another language translates the theory of second-language reading and the insights gained through a simulated activity into a practical plan for classroom teachers. The five-step plan represents an instructional framework providing the student with opportunities to develop essential reading skills. The five steps include: prereading or preparation, skimming and/or scanning, intensive reading/decoding, comprehension check/evaluation, and transferable or integrating skills. The continuum of activities requires the student to think about context, retrieve relevant world knowledge, use prior language skills, solve for unknown meanings, and build effective strategies for future readings.
