FIRST Reading: Focussed Instruction in Reading for Successful Teaching.
Newman, Anabel P.; Metz, Elizabeth
This book describes FIRST (Focussed Instruction in Reading for Successful Teaching) Reading, a computer program that takes answers to 20 questions about a learner and matches this profile against profiles in the database. FIRST Reading, formerly called "Consult Reading," can recommend the most-likely-to-succeed teaching focus(es) for K-12 troubled readers with over 90% accuracy. Chapters in the book are (1) FIRST Reading: A New Look to Teaching; (2) What FIRST Reading Is Not; (3) The FIRST Reading Taxonomy; (4) The Eight Instructional Focuses; (5) Comprehension; (6) Functional Language; (7) Games; (8) Interest; (9) Language Experience; (10) Motivation; (11) Self-Concept; (12) Study Skills; (13) Implementation; and (14) FIRST Reading: Evaluating Affect, Attitude, and Success. Appendixes present the taxonomy, a learner profile sheet, bookbinding procedures, and sample informal interest inventories for grades 1-6 and grades 7-12. (Contains 53 references.) (RS)
