Reading across the Curriculum.
Ediger, Marlow
Few teachers set objectives for pupils to achieve when reading across the curriculum is implemented. Teachers in academic disciplines need to participate in staff development programs or inservice teacher education to be instructors of reading. Skills emphasized in staff development need to be tried out in the classroom and feedback should be secured to make necessary modifications in teaching. What to emphasize and how to make reading enjoyable by developing background information directly related to what will be read are important, as are readiness activities. After a reading activity has been completed, discussion should follow. Pupils individually/cooperatively may undertake follow up activities (based on subject matter comprehended), such as: make a collage; develop a model; engage in construction activities; dramatize selected situations; make a vocabulary game; take part in a debate; and summarize ideas using a personal computer. Reading subject matter involves comprehending the vital facts, concepts, and generalizations. (NKA)
