Abstract:

This book is concerned with the growing number of secondary school students who cannot or do not read as well as they might or who do not find personal value and pleasure in reading. A great number of publications have warned teachers and administrators in secondary schools to place greater emphasis on reading, but these publications have not always indicated how adequate reading programs for each child can be developed. This book presents the ideas teachers and professors have offered for effective programs. Effective teaching must contribute to the development of the total student, therefore teachers must understand and make use of the student's general experience, and their existing reading patterns. By providing appropriate materials and instruction, the teacher can help each student develop to their maximum potential.
