TEACHING ADULTS TO READ.
FORD, DAVID; OTTO, WAYNE
THIS GUIDE PRESENTS A VARIETY OF MATERIALS, METHODS, AND IDEAS FOR TEACHING FUNCTIONALLY ILLITERATE ADULTS (WITH LESS THAN GRADE 4 READING ABILITY). EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON HELPING ADULTS TO READ INDEPENDENTLY AND TO ATTAIN A LEVEL OF SKILL SUFFICIENT FOR EVERYDAY READING TASKS. THE FIRST THREE CHAPTERS DEAL WITH THE NATURE OF THE PROBLEM OF ILLITERACY AND MARGINAL ILLITERACY, THE ECONOMIC, DOMESTIC, SOCIAL, AND PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS THAT ARISE WHEN ADULTS RETURN TO SCHOOL, AND GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS OF ADULT LEARNERS. CHAPTER 4 IS LARGELY DEVOTED TO 24 BASIC READING SYSTEMS ACCOMPANIED BY DETAILED CHECK LISTS, WITH SELECTED SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIALS ALSO DISCUSSED. THE FINAL CHAPTER REVIEWS THE SEQUENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OF READING SKILLS, READING INVENTORIES AND STANDARDIZED TESTS, THE MOTIVATING OF STUDENTS, CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT, LESSON PLANNING, AND OTHER FACETS OF PROGRAM IMPLEMENTATION. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES CHAPTER REFERENCES, TABLES, ADDRESSES OF PUBLISHERS, AND A GENERAL INDEX.) THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE HOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY, BOSTON, MASS. (LY)
