Prescriptive Teaching Linked to a Learning and Tutorial Center.
Williams, Gilbert H.; And Others
A learning center at San Bernardino Valley College was established to diagnose and correct reading deficiencies in their students. The learning center focuses on specific reading skills and uses prescriptive teaching to tailor the method and materials to the individual students. Test scores indicate the particular reading problems the student has, and tutoring or autoinstructional programs are prescribed according to the student's reading level. Areas of instruction include word attack, vocabulary, comprehension, speed and flexibility, and application of reading skills to content subjects. Materials used in the program include reading kits, audio tapes and corresponding books and filmstrips, programed spelling materials, graded reading materials, textbooks, flashcards, pacing devices, study guides, and video tapes. The program is designed to cover a semester and the learning centers can accommodate about 300 students. (AL)
