A Guide to Curriculum Planning in Reading. Bulletin No. 6305.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
Defining reading as a dynamic, interactive process involving the reader in constructing meaning, this guide for the elementary and secondary curriculum was designed to facilitate effective and creative decision making by teachers for (1) integrating reading and writing across the curriculum, (2) developing readers who can independently apply appropriate strategies to a variety of texts and tasks for constructing meaning, and (3) developing mature readers who will choose reading as an independent activity during and beyond their school years. The contents of the guide are divided into the following sections: overview, understanding reading comprehension as an interactive process, developing strategic readers, K-12 scope and sequence--skills and strategies, analyzing the curriculum, planning for instruction, organizing for instruction, selecting instructional materials, evaluating the reading curriculum, and contributors to an effective reading program. Included among the many appendixes are a poster for word meaning strategies, a decision-making guide for teaching word analysis, guidelines for using computers in a reading curriculum, criteria for selecting nonprint media for a reading program, several bibliographies and a resource list.
