Study Skills for the Severely Retarded College Reader.
Cartwright, H. D.
University of Kentucky personnel aided Kentucky State College, a predominately black institution, establish the Reading and Study Skills Laboratory in 1967. This study examines the program which was designed for those students deemed academic high risks. All persons enrolled in the lab had decided disadvantages in an academic world because of their nonstandard dialects, but all were highly motivated toward achieving a higher education. The Survey, Question, Read, Recite, "Rite," and Review (SQ4R) system is the basic method on which the instructional program was patterned. The multisensory approach was implemented in conjunction with highly individualistic involvement. The approaches have resulted in better class attendance and fewer students making failing grades at midterm examination time. The author underlines the success of the program with the particular type of student involved and the methods used. References and a suggested list of materials for a college reading and study skills center are included. (NH)
