A Basic Reading Guide for Adults.
Vescolani, Mildred, Comp.; And Others
This curriculum was compiled to serve as a guide, review, or supplement to the programmed materials currently in use in the Adult Basic Education Program sponsored by the University of Arkansas. The criterion for the materials selected was their ease of adaptability to a job-oriented educational approach. The document is divided into the following sections: (1) Introduction--Basic Reading Instruction for Adults; portions of this section are devoted to Purpose, Adjusting Instructions to Individual Differences, Approaches to Reading, The Dual Role of the Teacher, and Materials; (2) Reading Defined--A Connotative Interpretation; (3) Developmental Reading; there are three major sections in this category--Recognition Pattern (words in isolation, and in context), Recognition Techniques (visual/structural and phonetic analyses), and Comprehension (interpreting meaning and implications, perceiving relationships, evaluation, reading for appreciation, and dictionary usage); (4) Evaluation; and (5) Sequence of Reading Instruction (three stages).
