Reading in Postsecondary Occupational Education. Faculty Development Resource Manual: A Supplement. Materials Developed and Used by New York State Two-Year College Staff in the Role of Faculty Trainers.
Fadale, LaVerna M.; Winter, Gene M.
This resource manual supplement presents selected inservice teacher education materials developed in 1982 by two-year college staff for use in local faculty development programs in New York. Introductory material identifies the goal of the inservice project, i.e., to enhance student success in postsecondary occupational programs by increasing instructors' skill and knowledge about reading-related instructional techniques. Next, part A provides summaries of the projects undertaken by faculty teams at 11 two-year institutions, identifying team leaders and members. Then, part B presents selected program outlines and materials, designed to supplement those presented in the 1981 edition of the resource manual. These materials include: (1) an introduction to estimating the readability of textbooks; (2) instructional guidelines for integrating reading techniques into a course on manufacturing materials and processes; (3) a description of an approach including a reading component in a word processing course; (4) faculty manuals on assessing the basic skill demands of career courses, creating a student manual, and writing better objective examination questions; (5) a slide/tape program serving as an overview to reading in postsecondary occupational education; and (6) sample instruments for evaluating the effectiveness of inservice efforts.
