Critical Reading Comprehension in the Intermediate Grades


by Roma Gans - 1940

Trends in curriculum practices indicate the importance of reference reading in the intermediate grades. In the study of a problem, pupils need to use a variety of books, magazines, and other printed materials in order to find pertinent information. This type of reference reading demands, in addition to such common skills as word recognition and sentence comprehension, the ability to weigh and consider the relevancy of the materials in relation to the purpose of reading. A phase of such critical reading is the ability to challenge the authenticity of the content and to discern the author's purpose in writing. Such an inclusive concept of reading comprehension is essential not only to in-school reading, but to all reading of children in a democracy, where censorship is inappropriate.
