Success in the Reading Curriculum.
Ediger, Marlow
This paper explores what a reading teacher might do to guide students to achieve and be successful in reading. The paper first points out that there are selected programs of reading instruction which are individualized for optimal student success, and then discusses some of these programs, such as: individualized reading; the experience chart; programmed reading; packaged materials as individualized reading instruction; and sustained silent reading (SSR) as individualized reading. It also discusses group experiences in successful reading, including: the traditional basal readers; library books used in a seminar method; and the Big Book approach. The paper concludes with a discussion of the great debate in reading--one school of thought stresses holism, while the other advocates phonics instruction. It opines that reading teachers need to study and analyze likenesses and differences between holism versus tightly scripted programs of reading instruction, suggesting that perhaps elements of both may be used in the teaching of reading.
