A Precious Legacy, Louise J. Walker Oct 1964

A Precious Legacy, Louise J. Walker

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

One of the blessings of my childhood was the utter freedom in which I was left to explore, sample, and lose myself in books. Almost as soon as I could handle a book, my parents taught me how to open and use one properly. Books have become a part of me. I would be lost without them. They are a way of life for me. I wish this same freedom for all children today!


Little Things Can Make Reading Easier, Louis Foley Oct 1964

Little Things Can Make Reading Easier, Louis Foley

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

In recent years, specialists in linguistics have become increasingly aware of a fundamental reason for poor reading. That is the reading of words one by one, instead of promptly recognizing their grouping, the patterns in which they are joined, or in other words sentence structure. The way a person reads orally seems to be a reliable indication of how he reads silently, for as a leading authority has remarked, "it is not likely that a word-caller in oral reading will read silently by language structures."* so it should be easy to determine in any case whether this basic fault is ...

Ah, Wilderness, George Egland

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

In the movement toward greater and greater specialization which is so popular these days, we can find growing tendencies for the members of new branch-professions to operate in ways which dis courage interprofessional cooperation. In much the same way as adolescents strive to establish distinct and secure self-images, so the various branches of the educational profession are seeking separate identity and status, and they are choosing routes which remove them as far as possible from their neighbors. This exclusiveness is pointed up dramatically by the very labels and distinguishing lingo which the new specialties are adopting.

Challenging The Curious Mind, Dena Heynen Oct 1964

Challenging The Curious Mind, Dena Heynen

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Is the education you are providing for your students real? Is it effective? Is it challenging the curious mind? There is a great concern today about what is happening in our schools and about how the youth of today will face the future of tomorrow.

"Look, Ma, He's Reading", Pauline Lucas

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

You learn to swim by swimming. You learn to sing by singing. You learn to drive a car by driving. The same truth holds for reading; you learn to read by reading, to really read that is, not merely to pronounce words. Why, then, don't we as teachers spend more time and effort leading children to the joys and habits of reading—volunteer reading for fun, for recreation, for sheer enjoyment?

Have Good Readers--Will Go Places, Joan Paul Jul 1964

Have Good Readers--Will Go Places, Joan Paul

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

John, a well developed fifth grade boy, has been chosen to repre sent his school in an all-city sports contest. Since he is very athletic and has been encouraged by his classmates, he stands a good chance of winning the 100-yard-dash trophy for his school. Sounds exciting, doesn't it? But, wait. What if his teacher tells him to run slowly so the other boys can keep up with him? No teacher would dream of doing that. We do not expect children to run at the same rate, and we encourage them to try to excel.

Ready Or Not Should They Be Taught, Vern L. Farrow Jul 1964

Ready Or Not Should They Be Taught, Vern L. Farrow

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

One quiet afternoon recently as I was pondering an article advocating early reading instruction, I could hear my children playing hide-and-seek. They were shouting, "Ready or not you shall be caught!" I could not help drawing an analogy between the meaning of their childish rhyme and my feeling toward the growing tempo and insistence of demands to plunge preschool children indiscriminately into formalized reading activities. Unconsciously I paraphrased the rhyme, "Ready or not you SHALL be TAUGHT!" It had an ominous connotation smacking of pursuit, capture, and force and I began considering the problem in earnest.
