Reading Development in Other Curriculum Areas

by John J. DeBoer & Gertrude Whipple - 1961

This chapter develops the view that teachers in the various curriculum areas are largely responsible for the development of reading ability. It stresses the fact that reading is central to most school subjects and important in nearly all of them. It considers the processes of reading and thinking as inseparable. Although a modern, enriched curriculum embraces many nonreading experiences in all areas of study, reading remains the major source of knowledge, stimulation, insight, and pleasure.
