Identified Sins in Teaching Reading.
Ediger, Marlow
This paper cites as selected taboos in teaching reading (identified by educators very frequently) the following: (1) homogeneous grouping; (2) round robin reading; (3) use of textbooks and workbooks in the curriculum; (4) individual endeavors in school work; (5) memorization of content; and (6) the controlled vocabulary in reading. The paper discusses each of these concepts in sequence and analyzes related implications. It concludes that reading teachers need to be on the lookout always for improved procedures in teaching, technology included, and that these new approaches should not be based on ideology but rather on assisting each student to read more proficiently.
