America's "Spelling and Reading with Riggs": Daily/Weekly Lesson Plans, Study Guide & Syllabus, with Daily Tasks Plus (Cognitive Skills, Grammar, Composition, and Vocabulary Development).
This 24-week Daily/Weekly Lesson Plan and Study Guide is designed to facilitate teachers'"in-the-classroom" study of Romalda Spalding's "The Writing Road to Reading," the Riggs Institute's auxiliary materials and other selected teaching aids which augment and enhance this methodology. After an introduction, the first section of the booklet presents a syllabus for a 6-semester-hour graduate and undergraduate practicum that outlines material requirements, student objectives and goals, instructional format, time frames, detailed completion requirements, 14 essay questions and an application to Southern Arkansas University. The next section of the booklet presents the 4 subdivisions of the study guide: general and instructional; chronological guide; teacher resources/reasons for use; and philosophy/pedagogy/research (assessment guide). Fold-out pages that present daily and weekly lesson plan charts and a "grammar map" are attached. (RS)
