One of the twelve exemplary programs summarized in the Introduction to Right to Read's "Effective Reading Programs: Summaries of 222 Selected Programs" (CS001934), Functional Literacy (FLIT) is a six-week course designed to upgrade the reading abilities of Army inductees to minimal levels necessary for certain career areas. FLIT literacy training is geared to job proficiency rather than to general educational development. The training strands consist of modular instructional units with end-of-module proficiency tests to enable each person to progress at his own pace. Instructional modules in each career cluster are based on job-related Army technical manuals and materials, and modules are available for careers in communications, clerical and mechanical work, and combat; as a medic; and as a cook.
