Based Reading Programs and the School Psychologist
Jerry Harris, Larry Harris
ABSTRACT: Systems for reading instruction include the language experience approach, the individualized approach, the programmed approach, and the basal reader approach. Commonalities and variations across basal reading programs, the most widely used system, are discussed.The major physical and instructional components are described including instructional materials, teachers’ guides, and management systems. It is asserted that familiarity with basal programs is of considerable utility to a school psychologist and examples are provided to support this assertion. Procedures are suggested for acquiring information regarding reading, instructional systems, and specific basal programs.
