Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Susan Rosensweig
Rosow brings her considerable experience as teacher and volunteer tutor for Literacy Volunteers of America to this extremely useful resource which is much more than a "thematic bibliography." The preface contains her personal philosophy, suggestions for engaging children, youth, and adults in reading, and the successful techniques she developed through trial and error. Rosow continues with an introduction that covers a wide range of topics including reading aloud, strategies for teaching reading, and a discussion of the kinds of reading materials that are included in each thematic unit, as well as additional student activities.

Units on preparing for the GED and other standardized tests and U.S. citizenship are particularly valuable. A subject index and an author/title index complete the volume. Each unit begins with first readers and picture books and continues with thin books, challenging readings, book chapters and strong passages, newspaper and magazine articles, and ends with supplemental events and activities. The entries are numbered consecutively, with a total of
