Reading Instruction for the Disadvantaged Junior College Student: Approaches Suggested by Higher Education Achievement Program Reading Instructors, Fall 1973.
Smith, Brenda D., Ed.
Six papers presented at a Higher Education Achievement Program (HEAP) Workshop by reading instructors at junior colleges are provided. In two of the papers, Jeanette Wilkerson lists the objectives of the Meridian Junior College reading program and provides a general description of the mode of operation, and Brenda Smith explains the structure and daily feedback incorporated into the organization of the reading program at Kennesaw Junior College. In the other papers, Dan Kesterson first questions motivation as a point of focus. He suggests focusing on the cognitive rather than the motivational aspects of learning, thus making the reading tasks reinforcing in themselves. Lucienne LeBlanc stresses the need for the student to see himself as somebody and the need for the instructor to be aware of the different techniques of motivating students. Clara Rogers presents a specific technique, role playing with vocabulary, as a means of getting students to communicate and become aware of their relationship with others. (Author/DB)
