Friday, September 2i, 1770 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID 3 Reading Workshop Teachers nass Herald News Service TABER Thirty five ele- mentary school teachers and administrators from the Taber School Division attended a re- cent reading workshop. Purpose of the workshop was to assist teachers in the func- tioning of the new 'language experience" reading program which has been adopted by sev- eral schools within the division. It was held under direc- tion of E. D. Lucas, western sales manager for W. J. Gage Company and Miss W. Muir, reading consultant During the morning session PRINCIPAL Douglas J. Caslleton, formerly of Provo, Utah, lias been appointed principal and teacher of tlie Raymond Seminary. lie was born at Blackfool, Idaho, and completed high school at Ma- lad, Idaho. He has a master's degree in school administra- tion from the Brigham Young University and. served a two- year mission for the LDS Church in the Eastern States Mission. Mr. Castleton also served in the U.S. Armed Forces and returned from Vietnam to Provo in 1969. Muir discussed the vari- ous instructional materials used with the Gage reading program. The afternoon session was de- voted to discussion of word per- ception skills, comprehension skills, spelling, and classroom organization. In order to obtain best results from the language ex- perience program, Miss Muir stressed five salient points: Listening and oral language- development must precede in- struction in reading. Children learn to read (heir "own language" more easily than words presented by an- other author, Teachers must w o r k with small groups in building "ex- perience charts." A majority of the class should be doing worth- while independent activities while the teacher works direct- ly wiiii a group. The readers ftexts) in this program are not to be used as the vehicle of instruction, as lias been the case in the past, but rather are designed to be used as a culmination to the language experience unit.
