Reading: Emerging Issues in the Two-Year Colleges.
Wortham, Mary Harper
The chaotic condition of college remedial reading courses is criticized in this speech, with major emphasis placed on the inadequacy of the "English-teacher-turned-reading-teacher" in coping with the drastic ability and attitudinal problems of the remedial reading student. An outline of six issues confronting colleges and junior colleges pinpoints deficiencies in existing programs. Suggestions for improvement stress (1) the need for teachers trained in reading theory and teaching methodology, and (2) systematic programing which is tailored to individual strengths and weaknesses.
