The Extension and Improvement of Secondary Level Developmental Reading Programs.
Sullivan, Dorothy D.
The rationale and means for extending and improving developmental reading programs at the secondary level are discussed. Objectives of these programs are viewed as extensions of developmental reading objectives at the elementary level. To develop awareness of the need for such reading instruction at the secondary level, reading institutes for high school administrators jointly planned by state departments of education, teacher-education institutions, and reading associations are recommended. The instructional responsibilities in the developmental reading program are delineated. Preservice and inservice teacher education programs are discussed, and eight suggested inservice activities are listed. Suggested preservice activities focus on relevancy to actual classroom situations. The content of a course in secondary reading instruction includes 14 topics and problems suggested by Artley. References are listed. Four short reactions are given. (WB)
