Developmental Studies Reading Program.
Birmingham, James R.
The developmental reading program at John Tyler Community College was designed to strengthen students' overall reading ability to the desired level for each curriculum. Length of the program varies from one quarter to a two-term course of study, depending on reading level. Included in this pamphlet is a basic outline of the course; discussed are enrollment procedures, passing criterion, "challenge day," re-enrollment procedures, physical diagnosis, instruction methods, program materials, program achievements, and goals. An experimental project to evaluate and improve the program reveals that during the first three years, students completing the individualized reading classes were found to have increased their reading level an average of two to three years after one quarter of instruction.
