Principals Must Face The Issues And Meet The Challenges Of Improving The Reading Program, Joseph B. Tremonti Oct 1968

Principals Must Face The Issues And Meet The Challenges Of Improving The Reading Program, Joseph B. Tremonti

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

The principal has a vital interest in the reading program in today's school. The complexity of our social order, coupled with parental anxiety about reading, has forced the principal to become deeply involved in a knowledge of the purposes and techniques of reading instruction. More than ever before the community wants to know what happens in its school.

Lingual Deviation, Visual Perception, And Reading Achievement, Dolores Warner

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Progress in reading instruction depends to a great extent on perception and cognition. Perception depends upon the performance of sensory organs, quality of the circumstances attendant to the act of perception and the attitudes and predisposition of the perceiver which affect the quality of his perceptual performance.

Reading Around The World, Wilhelmina Faunce Oct 1968

Reading Around The World, Wilhelmina Faunce

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Several years ago while driving through Scotland, I saw boys and girls neatly dressed in their school uniforms with book-bags over their shoulders, obviously on their way to school. The thought occurred to me that it would be very interesting to know how children in other parts of the world were being taught. This year when my husband was invited to direct an alumni world tour during the spring term, I decided this was the chance of a lifetime to incorporate into the trip a study in comparative education.

Passing Sentence On Sentences, Louis Foley Jul 1968

Passing Sentence On Sentences, Louis Foley

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

In his book, The Art of Plain Talk, Mr. Rudolf Flesch makes many assertions which seem convincingly plausible on the face of them, but which prove to be oversimplifications or plain distortions of fact if one troubles to look beneath the surface. Good examples are the comparisons he is fond of drawing between English and other languages. He tells us, for instance, that Modern Persian "has done away with articles," and admires that as "exactly the same simplification [that] is being used today by our headline writers." Now of course the telegraphic style of newspaper headlines serves its purpose well ...


A Reading Specialist Reacts To Chall's Reading Study, Nicholas P. Criscuolo Jul 1968

A Reading Specialist Reacts To Chall's Reading Study, Nicholas P. Criscuolo

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Research into beginning reading instruction has been published recently in the form of a book entitled Learning to Read: The Great Debate (2). Its author is Jeanne Chall, professor of education at Harvard University, who was commissioned by the Carnegie Foundation to analyze critically the findings of over fifty years of research studies in beginning reading. As part of this project, Dr. Chall also interviewed teachers and administrators and visited some 300 classrooms in the United States, England and Scotland.

Did You See?, Dorothy J. Mcginnis

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

"Reading Expectancy Fonnulas: A Warning Note" by George A. Simmons and Bernard J. Shapiro? The authors state that a major problem in remedial reading programs is the identification of the disabled reader. Reading expectancy formulas have been proposed as one way to solve this problem. A comparison of three of these formulas revealed that reading expectancy is not an absolute concept but is highly relative to the specific method used to determine it. The authors conclude that such formulas can be misleading if used as more than a rough indicator of reading expectancy. The article appears in the May 1968 ...

Janice is a personable young woman of nineteen, a high school graduate with a high school placement score of 73. She is not a candidate for enrollment in local universities. In fact, her prospects for success at any college are dim.


Why Waste Our Time On The Culturally Deprived?, Pat Houseman Jul 1968

Why Waste Our Time On The Culturally Deprived?, Pat Houseman

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Why should we waste our time with the culturally deprived student? Yes, I said waste. When a child is in our charge for at least ten years of his life and at the end of this time cannot function as a productive member of society, then we have wasted not only our time but also his time. We have wasted our energies, money, and talents. There is a tragic waste of human potential. What can we do to end this waste? How can we prepare the culturally deprived child to live in our complex world?

Did You See?, Dorothy J. Mcginnis

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Gerald C. Duffy's article, "Developing the Reading Habit" which appears in The Reading Teacher for December 1967? He shows that there is considerable evidence that "Johnny can read but does not do so." He maintains that this situation may be the result of almost exclusive concern with the reading skills and a neglect of recreational reading. He believes that the reading habit does not develop naturally, that time for recreational reading must be provided in classrooms, and that real efforts must be directed toward making reading a natural and enjoyable part of children's lives. This article should be ...

Is It New?, Hazel Askin Apr 1968

Is It New?, Hazel Askin

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Education by hard, cold definition is a drawing, or leading out process-a growing into, from the Latin verb "educo." It would seem then, on the surface anyway, that any process or technique for teaching of reading or any other part of the curriculum would have been a gradual outgrowth of preceding techniques, philosophies or procedures. When news media and public communications systems, therefore, douse a reading and viewing public with buckets of intellectual baptism purported to be new and revolutionary, it would seem advisable for professional people to become acquainted with factual backgrounds of these so-called "new" techniques before becoming ...

And It Happened To Me, Joe R. Chapel Apr 1968

And It Happened To Me, Joe R. Chapel

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

You should know Ignacio, Maria, Petunia and Pedro--especially Pedro. Because of my involvement with the teaching of migrant children this summer I was able to become acquainted with them, to work with them, and to fall in love with them. Many of the people who participated in this program no longer abide by exigencies of the middle class, in utter oblivion to the migrant children's needs and to their worth.


The Disadvantaged Child And His Problems With Regard To Reading, Joseph B. Tremonti Apr 1968

The Disadvantaged Child And His Problems With Regard To Reading, Joseph B. Tremonti

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

One of the most fashionable topics for discussion among educators today is the problem of the education of the culturally deprived child. The few people trying to understand this child have given him a name, not a satisfactory name, but a name; they call him C( culturally deprived." What defines him is not an absence of money or nice clothes or good furniture or cars or food, although all these objects are usually lacking. These children suffer from poverty of experience. Perhaps their lives are rich with experience their teachers know nothing about. But they are growing up unequipped to ...
