This manual describes a comprehensive reading program for adults and provides specific, practical help for teachers. Four stages in adult reading ability are identified: introductory; elementary; intermediate; and developmental, with various levels of each stage. Included are suggestions for procedures to determine reading levels of individual adults, teaching methods, and instructional materials (teaching machines, reading tests, and vocabulary exercises). Appendixes provide the addresses of publishers, film companies, suppliers of special reading devices, and a bibliography of books for reading teachers. (se)
