Success in Reading.
Ediger, Marlow
The reading teacher needs to determine what each pupil needs to be a successful reader. In collaborative reading, the teacher guides the pupil to read, cooperatively, content that is stimulating yet predictable, consisting of rhymes, refrains, and poems. Most children like to read orally and reading together with others hurdles difficulties in word recognition. Cooperative reading may be used with young readers as well as for remedial reading. There are specialists who advocate pupils reading content with the subject matter of their choice. A scaffolding approach in teaching can be used, in which the teacher may stress the new words and learners practice their identification. Pupils benefit at all age levels in review reading and reading aloud with the teacher. Allowing pupils to choose which library books to read allows for individual differences. Thus, the reading teacher should try out diverse approaches in guiding pupils to attain as optimally as possible. (CR)
