My Experiences in the Teaching of Reading.
Ediger, Marlow
Experiences from the author's education in teaching, dating from 1949 through the acquisition of his ED.d. degree, are the subject of this paper. Included are a model for reading instruction at the elementary school level, a review of problems of teaching English as a second language to seventh-grade students in Jordan, and a list of the major ideas gleaned from a graduate course entitled "Reading and the Pupil." The paper presents the author's experiences as an elementary school principal and as a university professor with graduate students who were classroom teachers. Mentioned are the initial teaching alphabet (ITA) introduced into America from Great Britain during the mid to late 1960s and its short span of use, programs of instruction using linguistic procedures in teaching reading, the patterns approach in reading instruction, and the teaching trend in programmed reading. A brief history of reading instruction is offered in the paper along with a mention of the popularity of basal reading approaches, whole language reading instruction in a literature based curriculum, language experience charts, and individualized reading programs.
