Reading Comprehension and the High School Graduate, Panel 7; Conference on Studies in Reading (Washington, D.C., August, 1974)
Smith, Marshall S., Ed.
The problem of this conference panel was to develop a research and development agenda to improve the reading and writing proficiencies of high school graduates. This panel report consists of four approaches to the problem: studies of the problems of ill-prepared high school students; surveys of the reading and writing tests used by colleges and universities; analysis and description of intervention programs implemented at the college level, including positive and negative results; and exploration of new instructional strategies in order to understand the pedagogical directions of successful experiences and the ways of encouraging commitment to new approaches. A bibliography is included. (JM)
