Teaching adults to read by Wayne Otto( Book )

This guide presents a variety of materials, methods, and ideas for teaching functionally illiterate adults (with less than grade 4 reading ability). Emphasis is placed on helping adults to read independently and to attain a level of skill sufficient for everyday reading tasks. The first three chapters deal with the nature of the problem of illiteracy and marginal illiteracy, the economic, domestic, social, and psychological problems that arise when adults return to school, and general characteristics of adult learners. Chapter 4 is largely devoted to 24 basic reading systems accompanied by detailed check lists, with selected supplementary materials also discussed. The final chapter reviews the sequential development of reading skills, reading inventories and standardized tests, the motivating of students, classroom management, lesson planning, and other facets of program implementation. (The document includes chapter references, tables, addresses of publishers, and a general index.) This document is available from the houghton mifflin company, boston, mass. (Ly)

Part 1 of a book for administrators and teachers is devoted to an overview of the school reading program: its focus and scope, its component skills and their development, and its relationship to the other language arts. The emphasis is not on the specifics of instruction but on providing a framework within which efficient reading instruction can be effected. Part 2 discusses aspects of a school program that need consideration if improved reading instruction is to result. Scheduling, materials, evaluation, public relations, and roles of specialized personnel are discussed. In addition, suggestions for inservice training programs are made, and 17 model inservice programs are described. References are included for each chapter. (Wb)

Materials for teaching adults to read by Wayne Otto( Book )

An extensive survey and review of the materials available for teaching illiterate adults to read was conducted by questioning publishers about the literature they published for the adult basic literacy market. Based on the publishers' replies, the following six annotated lists of adult reading materials were compiled and are presented--basic reading programs for adults, supplementary skill builders, supplementary easy reading materials, U.S. government printing office publications, materials for teaching reading to foreign born adults, and a selected list of publications useful to literacy instructors. A checklist accompanies each program to aid in its evaluation. Publishers' addresses are given. References are included. (Rh)
The identification of reading skills essential for learning in seven content areas at postelementary levels by Beverly Morrison( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A questionnaire was designed to give content area teachers an opportunity to review 35 reading/learning skills that are necessary for vocabulary development, the comprehension of written materials, and the efficient use of study time. Over 400 secondary school teachers in seven content areas (English/language arts, social studies, science, mathematics, home economics, business education, and industrial arts) were asked to indicate the relevancy of each skill for learning their subject matter and their expectations of a student's ability with that skill. The data, analyzed across and within content areas, indicate widespread recognition of the relevancy of the reading/learning skills as well as the expectation that students will need help in applying these skills to learn content. (A copy of the questionnaire is included.) (Author/MKM)

Application of Jensen's bidimensional model of learning to the reading process : report from the Project on Individually Guided Instruction in Elementary Reading in Program 2 by Nathaniel A Peters( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both associative and conceptual learning are presumed to be of importance in reading at all developmental levels. However, it is hypothesized in the present study that there is a stronger relationship between beginning reading and associative learning than between beginning reading and conceptual learning. Conversely, it is hypothesized that there is a stronger relationship between later reading and conceptual learning than between later reading and associative learning. A total of 108 subjects from Grades 2, 4, and 6 were used in the study. An equal representation of good, average, and poor readers at each grade level and for both sexes was obtained. The essential findings of the study were that there is no significant difference between the performances of good, average, and poor readers on (1) an associative learning task at the first grade level; (2) an associative conceptual learning task at the fourth grade level; nor (3) a learning task at the sixth grade level. Finally, there is no significant difference between the performance of boys and girls on associative and conceptual learning tasks. (Author/JH)

Learnability of basic sight words : report from the Project on the Conditions of School Learning and Instructional Strategies by David Joseph Gustafson( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was designed to rank the first 100 words of the "Great Atlantic and Pacific Sight Word List" according to learnability. The differences in the learnability rankings of the words due to the sex of the subject and the relationship between the learnability and frequency rankings of the words were also examined. Subjects in the study were 200 kindergarten pupils enrolled in eight northeastern and central Wisconsin elementary schools. No significant differences were found between the overall learning ability of males and females or between the learnability and frequency rankings of the words. It was concluded that a rank-order of the first 100 words of the "Great Atlantic and Pacific Sight Word List" had been determined; the sex of the subject seemed to be related to the learnability of some words, but the real significance of this relationship was open to question; and the frequency and learnability rankings of the words were not related.
