Skill Development in Junior College Reading Programs.
Dintelman, C. J.
This topical paper is one of a series on various facets of reading programs in the junior college. For convenience, this discussion of reading skills is divided into three main categories. The first category, speed-reading, is concerned with: visual discrimination associated with rapid recognition of meaning, visual-motor-mental functioning, skimming and scanning, and elimination of faulty reading habits. The second category, comprehension skills, is related to: vocabulary recognition, retention of literal and critical content, recognition of main ideas and supporting details, paragraph analysis, recognition of organization patterns, and ability to read creatively, critically and interpretively. The final category, related factors, includes concentration, recall, reading skill in test-taking situations, and the use of library and reference materials. (Author/CA)
