Secondary Reading in Wichita: Guidebook. Revised.
Wichita Public Schools, KS. Curriculum Services Div.
In response to the need for improvement of reading instruction, a committee of secondary reading specialists developed this guidebook, which allows for three distinct levels of usage: as a curriculum guide for administrators and counselors, offering expanded course descriptions of all reading classes offered at the secondary level; as a reference and resource guide for reading specialists; and as a guidebook for content area teachers. The guidebook is divided into the following sections: (1) what is known about secondary reading; (2) goals and objectives of secondary reading; (3) parameters of the secondary reading program; (4) secondary reading course descriptions; (5) roles of the administrator, student, parent, and secondary reading specialist; (6) aids for the secondary reading specialist, such as class record sheet and prospective student forms; (7) content area reading--reading achievement levels, assessment, directed reading lesson, vocabulary development, reading comprehension, and study skills; (8) aids for the content area teacher, such as reading inventories, class profiles, and questioning techniques; and (9) aids for the student, such as test taking skills. A five-page bibliography is included, and appendixes contain the San Diego Quick Assessment, the Fry readability graph, and the cloze procedure. (HOD)
