Teaching Reading Skills in the Community College Class Room.
Basile, Donald D.; Long, Janice
The diverse student population which characterizes most community colleges requires that its professors recognize new techniques for teaching communication skills to disabled learners. This paper offers junior college instructors in the content areas some techniques for improving the reading skills of their students and includes suggestions for assessing students' reading concerns and abilities, for presenting material and assignments clearly, and for helping students to acquire the necessary reading skills to complete assignments. Examples are provided of a reading and study skills attitude survey, of a cloze test for assessing reading ability, and of teaching techniques which use vocabulary, survey of text format, questions, and paraphrases.
