The Comprehensive Reading Program: A Preliminary Report.
Waters, Margaret M.
The Comprehensive Reading Program at Brooklyn College, designed for open-admissions students with poor reading skills will attempt to help students develop the sophisticated reading skills necessary to deal with the college curriculum. This preliminary report of the program, written in preparation for its pilot semester, includes course outlines for separate courses in basic vocabulary, basic comprehension skills, intermediate comprehension skills, advanced reading comprehension (classroom and laboratory components), and reading for students to whom English is a second language. The outlines discuss rationale and objectives for the courses, student population which will be required to take the courses, and course structure; in most cases, a bibliography of materials is provided. Other sections of the report describe the reading laboratory, the use of student tutors, basic screening procedures, the use of group counseling as a part of the reading program, the evaluation plan for the pilot phase of the program, personnel and facilities, and pilot semester enrollment.
