A Reading Program for Open Enrollment.
Spencer, Gary D.
A program designed to provide instruction in fundamental English, mathematics, science, and reading skills to 200 students entering college under a federally supported open enrollment plan is described. The program began as a 6-weeks summer program aimed at diagnosing needs of students and offering them assistance with reading and study skills related to the courses they would take in the fall. During the fall and spring semesters courses were offered in general reading, writing, and reading in social science, science, humanities. In the spring semester students in regular programs were also admitted to the open enrollment classes. First year evaluation indicated some gains in reading and writing skills and determined (1) that strict control of attendance was a factor in success, (2) that further study was necessary to continue first year gains, and (3) that counseling of students was advantageous. Several possibilities for additions to the program were listed. (MS)
