The Beginning College Reader.
Quealy, Roger J.
Students entering colleges under open-enrollment plans require special kinds of help from instructors of college reading and study skills programs. Such students often have poor scholastic records and only moderate interest in academic pursuits. They need highly individualized attention to the particular problems they experience with reading and positive reinforcement of capabilities they possess. A Kentucky college program designed to meet the needs of open enrollment students uses small class groups to insure time for one-to-one instructor/student interaction. A variety of materials are made available for use, and emphasis is placed on planning individual student programs based on need. After 4 years of operation which included modifications when needed, the program was judged to have been successful in that open-enrollment students were graduating from the college. (MS)
