Job Corps Reading Manual.
Office of Economic Opportunity, Washington, DC. Job Corps.
Designed to assess the current reading ability of a Job Corps member, to introduce him to appropriate material for improving his reading ability--combining self-paced and individualized instruction--and to raise his reading ability to the seventh or eighth grade level as measured by standardized reading achievement instruments, this reading program consists of three major components: the beginning reading program, the graded reading selections, and the advanced reading program. Supplementary sections include "The Controlled Reader Jr." for reading speed improvement, "The Language Master" for vocabulary practice, "The Job Corps Library," and "Instructional Reading Films." An appendix lists reading materials which provide Table of Allowance line item numbers and Job Corps codes. (JM)
