Elective Reading Course for Grades 7-9.
Thomson, Kathy
The program of studies for a reading elective course for avid or potentially avid readers at the junior high school level contained in this guide represents an attempt to address problems experienced by young adult readers. The program would provide time for them to read, and it would allow students the opportunity to value reading whether it be periodicals, newspapers, novels. Additionally, the program would allow students to progress through the stages of reading that would enhance their chances of becoming lifelong readers, and it would allow them the opportunity to discuss what they are reading and extend themselves in the process. Most importantly, the program will also allow students to make their own reading selections, an issue that is often overlooked in language arts classes. The program guide contains the following sections: General Introduction; Course Assessment; Community Service Projects; On-going Individual Reading Assignments; Award Winning Books; Film/Novel Study; Book Challenges and Censorship; and Author Interviews.
