Desirable Materials, Facilities, and Resources for Reading

by Gertrude Whipple - 1949

The reading program described in chapters iv to vi requires adequate facilities for teaching reading and a sufficient supply of suitable reading materials. The materials should be ample in quantity, of wide variety and good quality, and should represent a range of difficulty commensurate with the pupils' reading abilities and interests. Without adequate materials, the teacher cannot provide adequate instruction, either in reading as such or in the entire school program. This chapter describes the necessary facilities and reading materials and outlines desirable methods of selecting books for school use. Schools lacking such reading equipment may not find it possible to attain the suggested standards immediately but ought to work toward recognized standards over a period of years.
