Secondary Developmental Reading Programs--Are They Feasible?
Dolan, Sister Mary Edward
Current trends in secondary developmental reading programs have been encouraging. Research on the components of such reading programs is being done, and the results of this research are being communicated to teachers in secondary schools. Education programs in colleges and universities are becoming involved with the local school systems and their problems, thus insuring realistic preservice training for beginning teachers and up-dating the content and practice of veteran teachers. Individualized performance-based instruction in which students work at their own rate on specific instructional objectives is being implemented in secondary schools. The trends seem to suggest that, although serious problems have hampered their development and/or implementation in the past, secondary developmental reading programs are indeed feasible. References are included. (AL)
