Bristol Community Coll., Fall River, MA.
This document lists several prerequisites required for reading, especially those that relate to English as a Second Language students. The prerequisites listed include; the concept of print, which discusses the importance of a student being aware that printed material conveys thought through words which are at least similar, if not identical to oral speech; a knowledge of the graphic system, which emphasizes that the student must be able both to recognize that a graphic symbol is or is not a letter of the alphabet and to know the distinctive features of each letter; and the importance of a student being able to focus his eyes on fine print and move them from left to right.
