Teaching Reading in High School by Robert Karlin? This book was designed for high school teachers interested in providing reading instruction in their classrooms. Karlin emphasizes the need for the teaching of developmental reading at the secondary level, and he supports his point of view with statistics resulting from a survey taken in the New York public high schools in 1955. According to this survey approximately forty percent of the students evaluated were found to be reading at least a year below their reading expectancies. Basic reading skills, such as word recognition, reading comprehension, rate, study skills and literary appreciation, are discussed. Specific examples of reading lessons are detailed. Secondary teachers should find this book to be a useful guide.
