Taschow, Horst G.
Important considerations in planning a junior college reading program are presented. The need for a flexible reading program to meet the varied reading abilities of junior college students is emphasized, and the selection of an experienced, well-prepared reading instructor is seen as being vital to a sound program. Extensive study in the psychology of reading, diagnosis and remediation, counseling, testing and evaluation; practical experience teaching reading; and knowledge of reading research are listed as basic requirements for a junior college reading instructor. An abundance of materials designed to meet individual needs is also a basic necessity. Critical reading and teaching strategies are outlined and discussed. Flexible reading skills, vocabulary improvement, and directed reading lessons are seen as contributing to reading comprehension. References are included. (RT)
