As a new teacher in the Allegan Public Schools one of the primary goals for the year was to present reading activities to the children in as many interesting ways as possible to enrich their reading experiences. A multi-media approach was chosen to accomplish this goal and to encourage the children to love books. By multi-media approach (1) is meant an approach that uses as many printed and audiovisual forms of communication as possible. The program used consisted of the following media, which are by no means all that are currently available: Basal Readers, Library Books, Film Strips, Educational Television, Home Television, S.R.A. Reading Laboratory, Room Visitors, Daily Writing, Creative Writing, Film Strips with Coordinated Records, Creative Art, and a Class 110tion Picture.
