Reading and the Curriculum.
Ediger, Marlow
What do students need to achieve in reading? Students need to master phonics elements as needed. Ten cautions in teaching phonics are outlined, which also offer a framework for reading across the curriculum. Reflective thinking in reading is important, and students should be taught to ponder and probe ideas gleaned during and after reading instruction. Ten things that reflective thinking might stress are listed. Computer technology can be used in the reading curriculum when providing for individual differences of students. In interpersonal reading, students may learn from each other when working together, and may benefit in other ways. Intrapersonal reading emphasizes students achieving well on an individual basis. Ten ideas are listed for individuals who prefer to work by themselves. Portfolios and reading achievement are discussed, and 10 entries are listed which may become part of a student reading portfolio. Finally, state mandated testing is discussed. Ten weaknesses of such tests are listed, when they depend too much on test results to indicate student achievement. (Contains 20 references.) (SR)
