WHAT MATERIALS SHOULD BE USED IN COLLEGE READING COURSES.
HAFNER, LAWRENCE E.
COLLEGE STUDENTS AND THEIR READING PROBLEMS AND SOME MATERIALS WHICH MIGHT BE USED TO UPGRADE READING SKILLS ARE DISCUSSED. PROBLEMS IN LANGUAGE ARTS INCLUDE THE LACK OF SKILL IN STUDYING, LISTENING, WRITING, SPEAKING, AND DIFFICULTY IN UNDERSTANDING THE UNDERLYING CONCEPTS OF SPECIALIZED VOCABULARY. PERSONAL PROBLEMS SUCH AS ANXIETY ASSOCIATED WITH POOR ACHIEVEMENT, LACK OF MOTIVATION, AND LACK OF EGO STRENGTH ARE RELATED TO ACHIEVEMENT IN SCHOLASTIC SUBJECTS. THE MATERIALS WHICH CAN BE USED TO BUILD SKILLS OF COLLEGE READERS ARE CLASSIFIED AS READING MANUALS AND BOXED MATERIALS. THE USE OF MACHINES, COMPUTER-ASSISTED INSTRUCTION, NEWSPAPERS, MAGAZINES, AND PAPERBACKS IS DISCUSSED. THE USE OF MATERIALS DEPENDS ON THE INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUES WHICH ACCOMPANY THEM. BRIEF DESCRIPTIONS OF 12 SELECTED READING MANUALS, STUDY MANUALS, AND BOXED MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED. REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (SEATTLE, MAY 4-6, 1967). (BK)
