Reading in the Language Arts.
Ediger, Marlow
Teachers, principals, and supervisors must become thoroughly familiar with innovations in the teaching of reading, and these new approaches should be evaluated thoroughly before being introduced in an elementary school. A quality reading readiness program might include the use of experience charts in which students propose experiences from a variety of sources to be transcribed in easy-to-read letters onto a chart to be used in discussion. Learning centers and individualized instruction should also be considered. Basal readers are widely used, but care must be taken to use basals creatively and on an individual level. Linguistic approaches and the use of specific objectives are advocated by some teachers and administrators as well. It is important to determine carefully students' reading level and to evaluate their reading progress so that individual differences among learners can be accommodated. (RS)
