Six articles concerning college reading instruction are presented in this special interest journal. Chester Tillman and A. Garr Cranney offer informal guidelines for evaluating commercially produced reading improvement materials in terms of their purpose, educational and psychological factors which affect appropriateness for a class, cost, and instructional staff attitudes. In the second article, Charlene Z. Holler presents an exercise worksheet to facilitate student evaluation of graphic aids in terms of comprehension of concepts, theories, or problems presented. Anne L. Mason reviews the use of the learning contract as a practical instrument for helping a teacher individualize a reading program. Janell B. Lang presents a form which can aid students in analyzing periodical literature related to their career program. Next, Bruce A. Lloyd describes a reading improvement program for mature adults designed to increase reading speed, comprehension, and vocabulary knowledge as a basis for continuing education and training. In the final article, Nancy Krigbaum and Archie Davis describe a college reading and study skills course with an open enrollment policy which enables the student to receive help when needed. (MB)
