Reach Out with Reading--The Reading Program at Metropolitan State College.
Cohen, Elaine L.
At an urban, open-door institution like Metropolitan State College in Denver, Colorado, many students enter college with some dificiencies in basic reading and writing skills. Therefore, the Reading Department at Metro State has attempted to meet the needs of the entire college through some multidisciplinary approaches to teaching reading. Reading improvement classes which emphasize reading in content areas are offered, but the program extends beyond the departmental walls. It includes (1) a six hours per week, team-taught block course which stresses an integrated approach to learning reading and writing skills, (2) support labs for Law Enforcement students, (3) a special class for meteorology students seeking to publish a journal of professional quality, (4) reading diagnosis for mechanical engineering technology students, (5) workshops and mini-classes in conjunction with the Skills Center and several departments, and (6) tutor training for tutors of the Skills Center, Veterans' Upward Bound, and similar programs at the college.
