Reading and the Pupil in a Challenging Curriculum.
Ediger, Marlow
Pupils learn to read in different ways with the use of diverse procedures. Many approaches in teaching reading have been used in the last 30 years and are still widely used, such as basal reading approaches; individualized reading using library books; strong phonics emphasis for young learners; whole language approaches; and experience charts. Newer plans of reading instruction based on sound educational thinking reflecting on appropriate philosophy and psychology of learning are Reading Recovery, an integrated language arts curriculum, rereading, and emphasis on higher levels of pupil cognition. Each plan for the teaching of reading needs to be appraised in terms of tenets of the psychology of education--interest, meaning, and purpose. (Contains 19 references.) (RS)
