An Outline of Issues/Design in the Reading Curriculum.
Noting that it is vital to pay careful attention to designing the reading curriculum, this document outlines the following issues: objectives in reading curriculum; learning activities; methods of teaching; assessment of student achievement; supervision in the reading curriculum; and philosophy of evaluation. Questions which arise pertaining to objectives include the following: (1) should objectives be stated in terms of performance goals or general objectives; (2) should there be a balance among knowledge, skills, and objectives; and (3) who should sequence the objectives. Learning activities can be formal and direct or can include student choice and interaction. Methods of teaching used must meet personal needs of pupils. A critical task of the classroom teacher is to be a good evaluator. In addition, a reading supervisor should work continually to help classroom teachers update their teaching skills. (PM)
