Plans for Education 100: A Reading and Study Skills Course at Floyd Junior College.
Howell, Susan Ann
The procedures taken and the results obtained in the planning of a reading and study skills course at Floyd Junior College are described. The course objectives and course structure are outlined. The aim of this course is to teach students reading, listening, notetaking, and study skills necessary for college success and to provide them with adequate practice for mastery of these skills. Students are tested both at the beginning and end of the course, and their scores are graphed to show each student's progress. Students are taught either by the instructors or by use of faculty-prepared or commercially-prepared tapes. Each faculty member prepared a taped lecture, an excerpt from his text, and a sample test over this material. A student experiencing difficulty in any course may choose to work individually on tapes, excerpts, and tests. Each student evaluates and improves his own place of study and develops a system of budgeting his time and keeps a weekly schedule of planned activities which are checked by the faculty. References are included. (AW)
