Teaching Reading to Under-Achieving Adults: Part Two; A Final Report of Follow-up Activities.
Palmer, William S., Comp.
Part 1 of this report reviewed the three week teacher-training institute held at the University of Delaware during July and August 1971. Part 2 reviews some of the followup strategies used and demonstrated throughout Federal Region 3 over the past year (July 1971 to July 1972). Two model teaching demonstrations were developed and used throughout the year. One model extended motivational strategies introduced during the summer session and related these strategies to specific reading techniques for use within a unit on the reading of advertisements. The second demonstration centered on readability formulas, and delineated factors influencing readability and relationships among readability variables. (WR)
