Creativity And The Reading Specialist: Some Observations From Research Data, Mark E. Thompson Oct 1982

Creativity And The Reading Specialist: Some Observations From Research Data, Mark E. Thompson

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

The term creativity is frequently used by educators to identify behavior that is different or novel when compared to conventional modes of conduct. This creative behavior usually is the ability to be imaginative and original in handling words, ideas, or materials. For reading specialists, an understanding of creative behavior may provide insight into certain reading problems.


A Summary Of Studies Related To The Effect Of Question Placement On Reading Comprehension, Katherine D. Wiesendanger, Ellen D. Birlem, John Wollenberg Oct 1982

A Summary Of Studies Related To The Effect Of Question Placement On Reading Comprehension, Katherine D. Wiesendanger, Ellen D. Birlem, John Wollenberg

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Most reading specialists would agree that the sole justification for the various decoding instruction in reading is to prepare the student for extracting meaning from the written symbol (Tinker and McCullough, 1962). The pronunciation of words without understanding their meaning is of little use to anyone. Therefore, the development of the processes by which meanings become associated with symbols must be provided for in any reading program (Bond & Tinker, 1973). According to Strang (1969), the mature reader must not only understand the literal meaning of a passage, but also interpret the author's statements, make critical judgments, inferences and evaluations ...


Pattern Books: An Activity For Beginning Reading Instruction, Elaine G. Wangberg Oct 1982

Pattern Books: An Activity For Beginning Reading Instruction, Elaine G. Wangberg

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

The Pattern Book activity to be described can provide a means of introducing and reinforcing high frequency vocabulary within a Language Experience Approach. With this activity the teacher selects a high frequency word (or a few words) which a small group of students or an individual student does not know. These words may come from the students' self-selection, from student' dictation, from a word list or from a basal pre-primer. The teacher then thinks of a common pattern in which the word(s) might appear.

What To Do Until The Readiness Workbooks Arrive!, Patricia Cunningham, James W. Cunningham

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

On a brisk October morning, Ms. Kind arrived at school early. "Are those readiness workbooks here, yet?" she asked Ms. Leeder, the principal. "Not yet," Ms. Leeder replied, "but they should be here any day now." "I hope so," responded Ms. Kind. "This morning I noticed how much the leaves have turned. The school year is moving right along. Since the school system's goal this year is to have all children ready to begin reading instruction by the time they complete kindergarten, and my children have such a long way to go, I had better get started soon." "Well ...


Direct Instruction Of Comprehension: What Does It Really Mean?, Gerald G. Duffy, Laura R. Roehler Oct 1982

Direct Instruction Of Comprehension: What Does It Really Mean?, Gerald G. Duffy, Laura R. Roehler

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

There is little to debate regarding the validity of findings which suggest that instruction focusing directly on the task of learning to comprehend will result in greater and more consistent achievement than incidental, spontaneous and/or oblique instruction. Within this framework, however, the term "direct instruction" can mask a multitude of qualitatively divergent classroom styles. To illustrate, we will briefly describe a study in which two second grade teachers. each reflecting the characteristics associated with direct instruction. provided noticeably different kinds or reading and language arts instruction for their students. With this study as a basis, we will then offer ...


Integrating The Language Arts For Primary-Age Disabled Readers, Robert F. Busch, Patricia W. Jenkins Oct 1982

Integrating The Language Arts For Primary-Age Disabled Readers, Robert F. Busch, Patricia W. Jenkins

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Children who attended the University of Missouri Child Study Clinic had an opportunity to participate in a program of reading instruction based upon a theory of the reading process developed by Kenneth S. Goodman. Goodman viewed reading as a meaning seeking process which has two characteristics. One is that the reader is attempting to get at meaning. The second is that he or she is using whole language to do so (Brenner, 1976). This whole-language comprehension-centered approach to the teaching of reading is rooted in the belief that children learn to read in as natural a way as they learn ...

The Language Experience Approach: A Transition From Oral To Written Language, Don Richgels

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

A language experience approach to the teaching of beginning reading makes use of the valuable resource of children's speaking ability. But more importantly, it also cultivates metalinguistic ability and eases the child's transition between two very different forms of language, utterance and text.


The Dr-Ta: Avoiding Common Pitfalls, Jane L. Davidson Oct 1982

The Dr-Ta: Avoiding Common Pitfalls, Jane L. Davidson

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

The Directed Reading-Thinking Activity (DR-TA) described by Stauffer (1969, 1980) is currently being used by many classroom teachers at all levels of instruction. The DR-TA is a procedure which improves students' reading-thinking skills by encouraging students to establish their own purposes for reading.

The superiority of the DR-TA is well established (Stauffer, 1976), and teachers who use the strategy effectively indicate that students do increase their abilities to reason while reading. However, elements of the DR-TA are being distorted or misused by some teachers who may then wonder why children don't seem to respond "like they're supposed to ...

Reading: What Is It? What's Required?, Mary Jane Gray

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

What is the task of the reader who is immersed in the act of reading? The importance of understanding this task has been recognized and given increased emphasis in recent years. For those engaged in the preparation of reading teachers, it has become apparent that they must help these future teachers to see that their choice of materials and teaching procedures should stem from an understanding of the task faced by the reader. To obtain an indication of whether or not future teachers did recognize the importance of basing their choice of procedures and materials on their view of the ...
