A Program for Job Related Reading Training.
Fox, Lynn C.; Sticht, Thomas G.
A functional job-related reading program was developed to cope with literacy problems of Army personnel; the program involves students who work individually on instructional worksheets in six main modules, each designed to teach a specific job-related reading task. This paper presents an overview of background research for the program, which was aimed at defining the Army's literacy problem and identifying objectives for a literacy training program. It then discusses the following aspects of the program: instructional principles on which it is based, student selection, first day inprocessing, procedures for administering student worksheets and for moving students through the instructional modules, types of items included on the worksheets, record keeping, and student characteristics. Data are then presented that indicate the success of the program, and its current implementation status in Army literacy schools around the country is noted. The paper includes charts showing program procedures and provides samples of such materials as the job reading task test administered prior to the program, student worksheet records, and worksheet exercises.
