[Operation Upgrade. A Bibliography of Materials for Adult New Readers and Tutors of Adult New Readers.]
Operation Upgrade of Baton Rouge, Inc., LA.
This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," is used by one of the affiliate groups of the National Affiliation for Literacy Advance (NALA), serving approximately 200 adults in Louisiana. The program used Laubach material, which combines a phonetic approach with symbol-sound association to teach functional illiterates how to read. Tutors meet individually with students once a week for about an hour and a half. There are five skill books in the basic program containing reading and writing lessons that build on what has already been learned and systematically teach additional phonic and blending skills, word analysis, word recognition, reading for meaning, and comprehension skills. There is no isolation drill on sounds of letters, syllables, or nonsense words. The Laubach materials are supplemented with books and workbooks from other publishers that combine reading practice with learning about everyday experiences. (WR)
