A Comparative Study of Reading Improvement Programs in Industry and Education in the United States and Canada.
Berger, Allen
A survey was made of the reading programs which exist in commercial reading firms, college and university reading centers, and corporations in the United States and Canada. The resulting data, recorded here, are presented so that one may become familiar with the current status of reading improvement programs in both countries. Fifteen tables contain the essence of the questionnaire results. Among the questions asked were Do these courses have any philosophy? How large are the classes? and Is vision checked? The survey revealed that both countries lack adult reading improvement courses which are offered by colleges and universities. This lack of service may contribute to the separation between universities and the cities in which they exist. Tables and references are included. (NH)
