Secondary Reading and Study Strategies: A Course of Study for Grade 9.
Meeks, Lynn Langer
Delineating the content that must be covered in the secondary schools of the State of Idaho, this guide presents a course of study to be taught in grades 9-12 for graduation credit. Although educators sometimes use the terms interchangeably, the course of study in the guide is not an instructional or curriculum guide--it prescribes what is to be taught; defines the subject in terms of purpose, definition, student goals and objectives; and can be changed only by action of the State Board of Education. The guide begins by defining the terms "successful reader,""study strategies," and "effective teaching of reading." The guide then presents position statements on assessment, content and reading teacher collaboration, diversity, instructional materials, listening, parent/community involvement, speaking, viewing, vocabulary, and writing. The guide next presents five goals and associated objectives for the reading and study strategies course. Appendixes present a survey instrument for content area teachers, an 18-item list of professional texts and selection tools, and documents related to "testing out" of the course. (RS)
