Teaching Reading to the Disadvantaged Adult.
Dinnan, James A.; Ulmer, Curtis, Ed.
This manual is designed to assess the background of the individual and to bring him to the stage of unlocking the symbolic codes called Reading and Mathematics. The manual begins with Introduction to a Symbolic Code (The Thinking Process and The Key to Learning Basis), and continues with Basic Reading Skills (Readiness, Visual Discrimination, Auditory Discrimination, Writing Visual-Motor Coordination, and Written Symbolic Code-Mathematics). A discussion is then presented of Comprehension (Operations of the Intellect, Stimulus Content through the Senses, Products [Internal], and Comprehension of the Reading Material). The final section of the discussion concerns Organizing an Adult Group for Instruction (Possible Material for Adults, and Physical Testing). Two appendixes present the following: A. Positional References and Volume References; and B. Oral Language Exam and Oral Language Exam A. A selected bibliography is provided. (DB)
