Reading in Technical Education.
The technical education student must become a proficient reader so that optimal achievement is possible in the work place. Technical education instructors must be certain that students have mastered the basics in becoming good readers. Students need to be able to read directions accurately and understand the contents. Informal approaches to determining students' reading levels can be used if they are having difficulties in obtaining ideas through the use of symbolic materials. Students need to be able to think critically and read creatively. Students and workers should also read for self-enrichment and wide use of leisure time. Continual progress in reading is a must. Quality sequence in reading experiences should guide the technical education student to become the kind of reader who benefits the work place as well as enriches the self. (RS)
