New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Continuing Education Curriculum Development.
The contents of this publication are intended to provide exercises in reading which require a type and a level of interpretation similar to that demanded by the test of General Educational Development. These exercises were also designed to reinforce the reading skills outlined in a previous publication, "Developing High School Equivalency Reading Skills." Contents are divided into the following five categories: vocabulary, nonfiction, fiction, drama, and poetry. For each of these categories an outline and listings of correct responses to assessments of comprehension are provided in addition to the literary selections. These literary selections reflect a variety of ethnic experiences--historical and contemporary as well as rural and urban. (JM)
