This paper discusses the general situation of reading instruction at the secondary level. The paper is divided into three sections: "Two Decades of Reading 'Programs,'" which discusses the increasing numbers of retarded readers, the claims of reading materials, and the characteristics of some of the existing reading programs; "Teacher Education and Secondary Reading," which discusses the problems that confront secondary reading instruction, the re-orientation and re-education of in-service teachers, and competency-based reading programs; and "The Learning Common, a Cooperative Approach," which discusses a Center for Reading Improvement/Students Instructing Students (CRISIS), which includes among its activities course sessions of two undergraduate courses, in-service participation, and a cooperative effort among various disciplines.
