Study As Self Instruction: The P.O.W.E.R. Comprehension Model, Richard Burke Oct 1976

Study As Self Instruction: The P.O.W.E.R. Comprehension Model, Richard Burke

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Most reading expected of secondary and college students is ac complished out of class even though that reading is usually for the purpose of school achievement. Usually it is instructional behavior we are after when we have students read for class, but most management of the learning process ends when the students leave the classroom. If out-of-class reading is for instructional purposes and if the teacher's function is to manage the learning process, then consideration of learning behavior in out-of-class instruction is worth our attention as teachers. Rothkopf (1965) has coined the term mathemagenics to refer to behaviors which ...

R> S1 + S2 + S3 +…Sn, Richard T. Vacca, Jerry L. Johns

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Proponents of a psychometric view of reading support the notion that there are identifiable "skills." These skills portray a compact picture of reading that underlies both its measurement and its teaching.


Analogies: Word Attack And Reading Comprehension Skills In A Thinking Context, Jerome Axelrod Oct 1976

Analogies: Word Attack And Reading Comprehension Skills In A Thinking Context, Jerome Axelrod

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Few cues give a teacher a more valid or quicker insight into her students' thinking abilities than analogies. The pupils' mental manipulations—or lack thereof—reveal to the aware and perceptive teacher a usually-accurate idea of the extent to which her pupils will be able to perform. Picture analogies for non-readers and word analogies for literate pupils can be used informally by the classroom teachers to approximate just how much pupils, individually, are capable of learningin an academic situation.


The Effect Of Music On Reading, Patrick Groff Oct 1976

The Effect Of Music On Reading, Patrick Groff

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

It is apparent that music and language reading are both perceptual acts. To read either language or music one obviously must pay close attention to selective details of a graphic display. To listen to music or to words read aloud also involves some common perceptual abilities. Therefore, it is predictable that some have claimed that children's experiences with music will help them to learn to read language. There are several "parallels" in music and language reading, Monroe contends.


Learning Modality: Another Pebble In The Pond, Diana Scott Oct 1976

Learning Modality: Another Pebble In The Pond, Diana Scott

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Approaches for teaching reading, as found in the plethora of reading materials now available, have become increasingly diversified. Audio materials have been added to several major reading programs. Kinesthetic materials are now provided for some programs. Many authors of reading programs are now reluctant to rely on "visual only" cues for teaching the numerous reading skills.

Self Concept Of Academic Ability And Reading Proficiency, John N. Mangieri, Henry D. Olsen

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Brookover and associates (1962, 1964, 1965) have investigated the nature of self-concept and its effects, and relationships, to the academic achievement. Results reported indicate that there is a direct relationship between self-concept and academic achievement.


Viable Strategies For Promoting Growth Among Reading Personnel, Nicholas P. Criscuolo Oct 1976

Viable Strategies For Promoting Growth Among Reading Personnel, Nicholas P. Criscuolo

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Reading personnel dispense knowledge and facilitate learning willingly. Yet, it's not a one-way street. Reading personnel have their own unique needs. They need to replenish their reservoirs of knowledge and constantly be aware of the latest trends and developments in the field. By so doing, they will be in a better position to help others.


Black Dialect In Children's Books, Melvin W. Wells Oct 1976

Black Dialect In Children's Books, Melvin W. Wells

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Black non-Standard English is different in grammar (syntax) from Standard English. The advent of the 60's produced authors who explored the full possibilities of language to deal with their themes. The increased use of dialect by black authors, particularly children's authors, was a sign that the nature of the black experience as they wanted to convey it did not have to rely on traditional forms, and literary devices; that they could treat familiar, realistic ideas and situations using a familiar dialect and relate that idea more effectively.


Professional Concerns: Standing Reading On Its Head, R. Baird Shuman Oct 1976

Professional Concerns: Standing Reading On Its Head, R. Baird Shuman

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

In his contribution to this column, Denny T. Wolfe, Jr., Director of the Division of Languages of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, calls for a more organic approach to the teaching of reading and suggests specific means of proceeding in this direction. What Dr. Wolfe writes is much in accord with the sentiments of James Moffett, who was quoted in the first appearance of this column (Spring, 1976).


Making Effective Classroom Assignments, George M. Usova Oct 1976

Making Effective Classroom Assignments, George M. Usova

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Today, probably more than in any other time, teachers are giving their students less and less homework. This is happening not because teachers believe less in giving assignments, but rather because teachers are finding that many students are not completing them.


Eliminate Discipline Problems Through Grouping, George M. Usova Oct 1976

Eliminate Discipline Problems Through Grouping, George M. Usova

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

A troublesome issue that many teachers face is getting their students to complete in-class discussions or writing assignments. When students work independently on a task, many are likely to be lost or uninterested in what they are doing and become frustrated. This frustration leads to despair, resignation or hostility, which in turn can cause discipline problems.


Assessment And Supervision Of The Field Experience Of A Competency Based Reading Methods Course, Martha Dillner Oct 1976

Assessment And Supervision Of The Field Experience Of A Competency Based Reading Methods Course, Martha Dillner

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

When the University of Houston committed itself to competency-based, field and campus-centered teacher education over eight years ago, the reading methods courses were primarily campus-centered and included lecture and discussion over assigned reading in a reading methods textbook. In an effort to be compatible with the field-centered focus of the College, a more intensive field-experience component was added to the reading methods course. This addition accentuated the need for a changed format which would be more consistent with a field-based program. The textbooks which had been used previously presented applications of the theory and practice of teaching reading, but did ...


Philosophical And Cultural Perspectives On Reading, Nathan Kroman Oct 1976

Philosophical And Cultural Perspectives On Reading, Nathan Kroman

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Candor requires that I disclaim any real expertise in the educational specialty of reading instruction. This probably accounts for my writing about it with such sublime confidence. I do, however, believe that I know how to read. Moreover I have related to large numbers of people who are representative of many and diverse occupational and regional sub-cultures across the United States and Canada all of whom believe that they know how to read. These people typically exhibit a rather particular pattern of thinking styles. Since thinking is related to language and language is related to reading and since they all ...


Reading In The Secondary School: Teaching Students How To Add Words To Their Vocabulary, Part I, Kenneth Vandermeulen Oct 1976

Reading In The Secondary School: Teaching Students How To Add Words To Their Vocabulary, Part I, Kenneth Vandermeulen

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

It is not difficult to collect a number of statements by the experts on why we must teach vocabulary growth. Words are the tools of communication, and, words are units out of which we build all thought and philosophy. Those are the truisms of yesterday, too old to attribute to a single person, and seldom thought about in today's world. Here is a thought by an expert today—"The substrata-factor research by Holmes and Singer indicates that vocabulary deserves predominant emphasis, since it contributes 51 percent to reading speed —far more than any other first-order factor." (James I. Brown ...


Echoes From The Field: Philosophy For Secondary Remediation, Shirley Madsen Oct 1976

Echoes From The Field: Philosophy For Secondary Remediation, Shirley Madsen

Reading Horizons: A Journal of Literacy and Language Arts

Almost all phases of remedial reading, from teacher training to practical application, are aimed at the early elementary levels (and rightly so), but reading problems do persist among students at the middle school, junior high and high school levels. Therefore, a committee of the Montana Reading Council has compiled this Philosophy for secondary remediation.
