Development of Specific Reading Skills in Adult Education.
Askov, Eunice N.; And Others
In order to give attention to the varied backgrounds and experiences of individuals entering adult basic education classes, a change from the established preselected program is suggested. This new approach would center around the assessment of a student's level of development in essential reading skills, particularly of word-attack skills. Such a program would allow teachers to do a more realistic and efficient job of teaching reading to adults and would allow adults to receive instruction at levels commensurate with their needs. It is recommended that when adults enter an adult basic education course they be given tests to determine the levels of their word-attack skill development. They would then be assigned to programs designed to meet their individual needs. A scope and sequence statement of word-attack skills is presented in the appendix. (MS)
