Readability And Parent Communications: Can Parents Understand What Schools Write To Them?, Nancy A. Mavrogenes Oct 1988

Readability And Parent Communications: Can Parents Understand What Schools Write To Them?, Nancy A. Mavrogenes

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

As for Americans in their early 20s, the National Assessment of Education Progress found in 1985 that 6 percent could not read as well as the average 4th grader and 20 percent could not read as well as an 8th grader ("20% of Young Americans," 1986). Therefore, it seems reasonable to assume that a significant number of parents in these school programs for educationally disadvantaged children are unable to read the communications sent to them by the schools.


Leadership Perceptions Of The Elementary School Program, Marie F. Doan, Ronald G. Noland Oct 1988

Leadership Perceptions Of The Elementary School Program, Marie F. Doan, Ronald G. Noland

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

The major purpose of this study was to identify similarities and differences between principals' and teachers' perceptions of the involvement of principals in the elementary school reading program. Such clarification was necessary in order to promote clear communication between the principals and teachers to meet program needs.


The Reading Process For The Beginning Reader, Mary Jane Gray Oct 1988

The Reading Process For The Beginning Reader, Mary Jane Gray

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

In spite of the fact that most of us learn to read to some degree or another in our lifetimes, no one has yet provided for us an answer to the question "What is reading?" Unfortunately, there is no single, simple answer to this question now, nor will there be such an answer in the future. Further, learning to read is a process which is unique for each individual. The reading task for a beginning reader is quite different from the task for a reader who has attained some proficiency. There is a common thread, however, in the reading process ...


Improving The Reading Comprehension Skills Of Poor Readers, J. Lloyd Eldredge Oct 1988

Improving The Reading Comprehension Skills Of Poor Readers, J. Lloyd Eldredge

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Although much has been written about reading comprehension in the last twenty years, theories defining the comprehension process, and strategies on how to teach it still pique the interest of educators. This article addresses the negative effects of poor decoding on reading comprehension, and reviews various strategies that have been used with poor readers to successfully compensate for the problem. It is proposed that the extensive exposure to printed discourse, and the phrase and sentence reading provided students in these successful remediation strategies are keys to improving the comprehension of poor readers.


Developing Higher-Level Comprehension With Short Stories, Richard J. Smith Oct 1988

Developing Higher-Level Comprehension With Short Stories, Richard J. Smith

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

The instructional guides described in this article are designed to raise students' thinking about short stories beyond factual recall to interpretation, application, synthesis and evaluation of material suitable for those levels of cognitive behavior. They are also designed to foster positive affective responses as concomitant reading behaviors. The objective of the guides is to teach students to apply their best thinking to short stories just as they do to the games they play, the movies they watch, the decisions they make about spending or saving money, and other matters in their lives that stimulate their best thoughts and strongest feelings.


Comprehension Monitoring Strategies Of College Reading Methods Students, Mary F. Heller Oct 1988

Comprehension Monitoring Strategies Of College Reading Methods Students, Mary F. Heller

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Recent theoretical and applied research into metacognition has provided important pedagogical implications for improving reading comprehension skills, specifically through comprehension monitoring strategies. A promising breakthrough in reading comprehension methodology involves asking students how they came to know what they know and then directly teaching them comprehension monitoring strategies through teacher modeling techniques (Heller, 1986; Palinscar & Brown, 1984). Thus, an effective way to teach the concept of metacognition to college juniors and seniors is to involve them in a comprehension monitoring activity. This paper is about the results of a study in which 50 undergraduate reading methods students learned about and ...

The Reading Preferences Of Third, Fourth, And Fifth Graders, Peter J.L. Fisher

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether sex, grade, race, and teacher variables influenced the reading interests of children in the intermediate grades. It was hypothesized that each of the four listed variables would have an independent effect on children's preferences.


Get A Grip On Comprehension, Paul M. Hollingsworth, D. Ray Reutzel Oct 1988

Get A Grip On Comprehension, Paul M. Hollingsworth, D. Ray Reutzel

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Durkin's research (1978-79) has indicated that much more time is spent testing reading comprehension than teaching it. Consequently, all reading comprehension skills need to be taught by the teacher to the students in the classroom. Since making inferences is a necessary comprehension skill when reading across the curriculum (Gordon, 1985), it also must be taught. However, many children find it difficult to make inferences because they are required not only to derive a conclusion from the facts or premises found in their reading materials, but in many cases, they must go beyond the text to their own knowledge and ...


The National Congress Of Black Faculty, Ronald W. Walters Sep 1988

The National Congress Of Black Faculty, Ronald W. Walters

Trotter Review

In recent years serious problems have arisen in the field of black higher education that have not been subject to systematic examination and corrective programming. These problems have magnified the necessity for a vehicle through which black faculty might be mobilized to contribute to the enhance ment of their own professional opportunities and thus make a significant impact upon black higher education in general. Some of these problems are discussed below.


Dynamics Of Minority Education: An Index To The Status Of Race And Ethnic Relations In The United States, James E. Blackwell Sep 1988

Dynamics Of Minority Education: An Index To The Status Of Race And Ethnic Relations In The United States, James E. Blackwell

Trotter Review

Throughout this century scholars and legal experts have devoted special attention to the issue of race and ethnicity as a determinant of life chances in the United States. Some of the more influential treatises in the social and behavioral sciences, many of which have become classics, addressed fundamental, derivative (and often more compelling) extensions of race and ethnicity. They focused on such topics as race-based group dominance, ethnic stratification, structural inequality based upon racial or ethnic identification, beliefs in inherent racial superiority and status privilege, class exploitation, the nature of prejudice, and the maintenance of power over groups defined as ...
