Reading and the High School Equivalency Program.
Fischer, Joan
The relationship of reading ability to passing the Interpretation of Reading Materials sections in social studies, science, and literature of the General Education Development (GED) test is assessed in this paper, and procedures for developing reading skills related to the test are suggested. Information about types of questions asked, instructional programs that have proven to be most successful in New Jersey, and tests that correlate with the GED test are included. In addition, instructional methods and samples of teacher-made lessons in successful high school equivalency programs are described. Although most GED preparatory programs emphasize content area instruction, instruction in reading skills is of greater importance in enabling clients to pass the GED test and hence to obtain a high school equivalency certificate.
