Procedures and Structure for Individualizing a Reading and Study Skill Program.
Ridenour, Delores
This paper is an account of procedures followed when the traditional classroom of a college reading and study skill program was changed to a fully individualized structure. A folder of information to be used by each pupil consisted of personal information graphs for plotting rate and comprehension scores, answer sheets, a reading skill and materials reference sheet, and a contract to be signed by each student. The counselor's record system consisted of recording the conferences, recommendations, and personal assessment of needs, materials, and procedures being prescribed. Test scores as well as an informal personal inventory were used for diagnostic purposes. Based on the diagnostic information, the counselors prescribed the areas and materials in which the student should begin working. The prescription was given to each student individually at a conference held during class time. A supplemental evaluation of the program after one year of operation resulted in eliminating the pupil contract, the introduction of mini-sessions for follow-up and extensions of lessons, greater reliance on informal inventories and individual conferences than on testing, and utilization of textbooks used by the students in other courses.
