Summary

Freedon of expression, lack of fear of criticism and humiliation, refusal to be content with the most easily established routine, and a spirit of play as well as a commitment to work should be some of the attributes in a creative environment for teaching reading. To create such an environment, the teacher should use the humanistic approach, becoming aware of how children feel about what they learn and accepting the dialect as these learners read, write, and express ideas orally. The teacher should also teach reading in such a way that students can make errors without fear of causing the teacher to "explode," and should help children feel good about themselves by knowing what to say to them when they make errors.
