Expanding Horizons: The Reading Bookbag To Go, Char M. Lemons Dec 1992

Expanding Horizons: The Reading Bookbag To Go, Char M. Lemons

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

The Reading Bookbag To Go can be tailored to fit your classroom's needs. Create a theme, include puppets, posters, store bought taped stories and blank story writing books — whatever coordinates with your curriculum or sea son of the year. The Reading Bookbag that I have used consists of a compact and simple (goof proof) cassette recorder and a durable, waterproof tote bag. Laminated identification tags are attached to the tote bags and each cassette recorder is engraved with an identification number. A teacher can arrange for a different student to take the bookbag home nightly, or use the bookbag ...

An Analysis Of Children's Responses To Storybook Characters In Non-Traditional Roles, Dianna D. Anderson, Joyce E. Many Dec 1992

An Analysis Of Children's Responses To Storybook Characters In Non-Traditional Roles, Dianna D. Anderson, Joyce E. Many

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Sex role stereotypes have been investigated in text materials (Rupley, Garcia and Longnion, 1981; Scott and Feldman-Summers, 1979; Taylor, 1973) and in children's literature (Ashby and Wittmaier, 1978; DeLisi and Johns, 1984; Donlan, 1972; Key, 1971; Kropp and Halverson, 1983; Styer, 1975; Weitzman, 1972; Winkeljohann and Gallant, 1980). These studies have examined the stereotypical roles portrayed by male and female characters, in terms of the way the males and females are presented in the material. Findings indicate change in sex roles to be slow; males still tend to be viewed as active and achieving while girls are passive and ...

Teachers Reflect On Their Experience As Readers: The Literacy Club Luncheon, Carolyn S. Andrews-Beck, James Rycik Dec 1992

Teachers Reflect On Their Experience As Readers: The Literacy Club Luncheon, Carolyn S. Andrews-Beck, James Rycik

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Just as teachers who write are best able to act as guides for less experienced writers (Graves, 1983; Murray, 1985; Calkins, 1991; Atwell, 1985), teachers who see them selves as readers - who are aware of the requirements and strategies of the reader's role - are best able to guide young readers (Smith, 1982; Bleich, 1985; Hansen, 1987). For this reason, it is important for teachers to keep their membership in the "literacy club" (Smith, 1985) current by attending regular meetings.


Basal Reader Alteration: A Creative Way To Put Schema Theory Into Classroom Practice, Sandra K. Moser, Samuel A. Perez Dec 1992

Basal Reader Alteration: A Creative Way To Put Schema Theory Into Classroom Practice, Sandra K. Moser, Samuel A. Perez

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Alteration of the typical basal lesson format is an out growth of research on schema theory. Reutzel (1985) has suggested that while most basals emphasize post-reading assessment, "schema theory punctuates the importance of the prereading stage of the reading lesson" (p. 194). One reason for the alteration of the traditional basal format is that basal instruction often fails to compensate for inadequate student background knowledge. In a study of three elementary basal series, Afflerbach and Walker (1990) found that in 407 instructional units assessed, over half assumed that students possessed the prior knowledge necessary to understand the text. This finding ...


Documentary Perspective Of Bibliotherapy In Education, Johnson A. Afolayan Dec 1992

Documentary Perspective Of Bibliotherapy In Education, Johnson A. Afolayan

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Implemented correctly, bibliotherapy may prove one of the better techniques in dealing with emotional conflicts among children and adolescents, as research reminds us that periods of development are critically contingent upon self-concepts and how individuals believe they are perceived by significant others. Because many individuals (children and adolescents) are reluctant to verbalize emotions such as fear, rejection, and depression openly, carefully selected books allow these individuals to understand themselves better, learn from the experiences of others and contemplate possible solutions to problems (Schrank, 1982). The purpose of this article is to provide knowledge and understanding of the history, concept and ...


Oral Language, Literacy And Schooling: Kindergarten Years, Karen F. Thomas, Steven D. Rinehart, Sherrie K. Wampler Dec 1992

Oral Language, Literacy And Schooling: Kindergarten Years, Karen F. Thomas, Steven D. Rinehart, Sherrie K. Wampler

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

This article reports the findings from the second year of a three year study following four children from a prekindergarten Headstart program through first grade. Grounded in the developmental theories of Vygotsky (1986), who has asserted the importance of social interaction and language learning, and Halliday (1975), who has provided a sociolinguistic framework for children learning language in social functions that promote meaning in their lives, it is an attempt to document the impact of oral language on young children's reading and writing. In the initial year of this study, we identified four children who demonstrated varying levels of ...


The Multidimensional Reading Instruction Observation Scale, Patrick P. Mccabe Dec 1992

The Multidimensional Reading Instruction Observation Scale, Patrick P. Mccabe

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

The Multidimensional Reading Instruction Observation Scale is a formative evaluative instrument which can be used to judge the quality of reading instruction by recording the nature of the interaction between the student and the teacher along three dimensions critical to quality instruction: cognitive processes, affective processes, and management skills. Cognitive processes are those behaviors which are directed toward acquiring strategies or skills (to improve reading). Affective processes are those behaviors which influence the self-concept of the learner. Management skills are those behaviors which demonstrate ability to utilize components of the learning environment effectively.


Expanding Horizons: Writing Cliffhangers, Jerry Phillips Dec 1992

Expanding Horizons: Writing Cliffhangers, Jerry Phillips

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Cliffhangers are story points which leave the reader in suspense. I recommend writing cliffhangers as a way of engaging students in the writing process. In this exercise students take three steps recommended by writing educators toward effective writing. First, they develop raw written material during several minutes of nonstop freewriting (Elbow, 1981). Second, they reread material, searching until they find a focus to develop further (Murray, 1987). Third, they publish a book when finished (Calkins, 1986).

Using Newspapers With Remedial Secondary Students To Improve Reading And Writing Literacy, Deborah G. Phelps, Donald D. Pottorff Oct 1992

Using Newspapers With Remedial Secondary Students To Improve Reading And Writing Literacy, Deborah G. Phelps, Donald D. Pottorff

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Literacy has gained national attention and continues to concern educators, parents, and a business community that relies on a literate work force. The use of newspapers in the classroom with secondary remedial reading students is a supplementary strategy that is worthy of attention. Newspapers provide special elements that have been well received by secondary students with reading problems.


Trends In Statewide Reading Assessment: A Closer Look, William A. Henk, Robert J. Rickelman Oct 1992

Trends In Statewide Reading Assessment: A Closer Look, William A. Henk, Robert J. Rickelman

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

In recent years significant changes in our thinking about reading have ushered in a much needed reform movement in reading assessment practices. The formal origins of this shift can be traced to exciting developments in statewide reading assessments that were rightly touted in the professional literature during the latter 1980s (Carbo, 1988; Illinois State Board of Education, 1988; Roeber and Dutcher, 1989; Wixson, Peters, Weber, and Roeber, 1987; Valencia, Pearson, Peters, and Wixson, 1989). Reports about truly innovative testing practices in pioneer states such as Michigan and Illinois seemed to signal the beginning of a national trend in reading assessment ...


What Is Important In Reading In Middle Level Classrooms: A Survey Of Classroom Teachers' Perceptions, Tom Davidson, George H. Mcninch Oct 1992

What Is Important In Reading In Middle Level Classrooms: A Survey Of Classroom Teachers' Perceptions, Tom Davidson, George H. Mcninch

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Should reading instruction in middle level schools be aimed at helping youngsters to acquire more specific, isolated skills of how to read? Or should the focus of reading in middle level schools be on assisting learners to become readers? An answer to both of these critical questions might be — yes. Middle level learners (10 to 14 years old) should grow both in their skillfulness as readers and in the process of becoming readers. Research data and current instructional practices can be found to support both of these positions.


How Can We Use What We Know About Questioning Skills To Develop Literate Thinkers?, Bonnie B. Thomas Oct 1992

How Can We Use What We Know About Questioning Skills To Develop Literate Thinkers?, Bonnie B. Thomas

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

As the critical thinking movement has developed and corresponding research has been reported, a wide body of knowledge has developed around the skill of questioning as a means of developing critical thinking. Effective teachers from Socrates to the present day have sought to do more than transmit facts to students. Teachers have tried to help students develop skills in problem-solving, analyzing, evaluating and interpreting information. A typical teacher does this by asking hundreds of questions on a given day. The prevalence of this type of teaching has been found in reviews of research on teachers' questions which include studies going ...
