SOME FACTORS TO BE CONSIDERED IN CONDUCTING A COLLEGE-ADULT READING PROGRAM.
CARTER, HOMER L. J.; MCGINNIS, DOROTHY J.
FACTORS CONSIDERED CRUCIAL IN CONDUCTING A COLLEGE-ADULT READING PROGRAM BY THE WESTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY READING STAFF ARE PRESENTED AS A GUIDE FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF NEW READING PROGRAMS ON THIS LEVEL. EIGHT PRINCIPLES DERIVED FROM EXPERIENCE WITH THE 22-YEAR-OLD WESTERN MICHIGAN READING PROGRAM CONCERNING TEACHER ROLE, A STUDENT'S UNDERSTANDING OF HIS READING ABILITY, STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY FOR READING IMPROVEMENT, SETTING UP READING OBJECTIVES, PHYSICAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS WHICH MAY AFFECT READING, SEQUENTIAL AND MEANINGFUL READING TRAINING, INSTRUCTIONAL PROCEDURES, AND A STUDENT'S EVALUATION OF HIS READING ACHIEVEMENT ARE DISCUSSED. HEAVY EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON THE IMPORTANCE OF ADAPTING THE PROGRAM TO EACH INDIVIDUAL. A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WESTERN MICHIGAN PROGRAM REVEALS THE CHANGES WHICH HAVE TAKEN PLACE FROM 1944 TO 1966. REFERENCES ARE GIVEN. (LS)
