The Role of an Open Reading Lab in a Community College.
Daugherty, Jean
The open reading lab program at Muskegon Community College includes: (1) student/instructor interview; (2) test diagnosis; (3) student/instructor conferences discussing test results, self-evaluation, and student program development; (4) supervised lab work; (5) student/instructor bi-weekly conferences assessing performance and progress; and (6) final conference evaluating total experience. Entry to the program is determined by an interview between the student and the instructor. Agenda for the interviews are: student identified needs; student's class schedules, employment, and other responsibilities; type of program--credit, non-credit, long term, short term; and the open lab schedule and enrollment procedures. The responsibilities of the reading lab paraprofessionals include: orientation of students to the lab, extension and amplification of the instruction direction given in the conferences, and checking daily work sheets and recording student progress. The professional staff consists of two full-time instructors, two full-time paraprofessionals, and three work/study students. (WR)
