Extending beginning reading by Vera Southgate( Book )

Extending Beginning Reading was a research project based at the School of Education, University of Manchester, England, from September 1973 to December 1977. The project, aimed at helping readers seven years and older improve their reading skills, is detailed in this book, in which most of the seven sections contain implications for teachers. The book begins with background information on the project. Part 2 discusses the questions to which the research was directed, such as, What is reading? How do children learn to read? What skills are used in reading? And, What can the teacher do to help? Part 3 contains the teachers' viewpoints, including their preferred outcomes of the project and their aims and objectives. Part 4 emphasizes the growing importance of the reading environment and investigates this environment in eight schools. Part 5 deals with teachers of reading, including their estimates of children's reading ability, the books they use, their methods, their encouragement and training of children to use reading skills, and the results of their guidance on children's book choices. Part 6 discusses children as readers, including what children think about reading, children's views on books, reading and related assessments, and strategies children use in reading (miscue analysis and the cloze procedure). Part 7 presents the main project findings and recommendations for a more effective reading program. The appendixes contain materials used in the project, including tables of findings and lists of related publications. (El)

Religious education in secondary schools by Schools Council (Great Britain)( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The overall objective of this working paper, developed by the Schools Council Project on Religious Education (re) is to encourage curriculum research and development. The specific objective is to examine the nature of re and related issues, raising questions for public discussion and commentary feedback to the project. Part one looks at re by: 1) raising questions among educators as to why re is necessary in schools today and what its role should be in the future; 2) examining prevailing re approaches in the light of recent writings and research done in this field; 3) identifying the major aims and objectives of re, necessary for designing methods and content; 4) showing awareness of the many possibilities of interdisciplinary methods; 5) considering the re needs of the minority and non-Christian groups; 6) analyzing the relationship between re education and moral education; and, 7) realizing that the difficulty of material necessitates teacher training. Part two focuses primarily on the organization of the project and on related issues. It is concluded that re should be in the school curriculum because the majority of English people demand it, and because of the significance of educational objectives that it presupposes, including consideration of the purpose of life and development of an understanding of the past and present impact of religion. The paper recommends that re should be neither dogmatic nor purely phenomenological but a combination of the two that includes a personal search for meaning and an objective study of the phenomena of religion.
