From Autos To Stereos. A Collection of Readings.
Designed to provide materials which the high school teacher can use to teach some of the basic reading skills or as supplementary reading material, this guide is composed of thirty-five articles of general interest which are vocationally oriented, followed by exercises designed to test comprehension and to teach reading concepts. The articles have been rewritten on a lower reading level and each is prefaced with definitions of new words. Some representative titles of articles are "Alcohol Power: Can It Help You Meet the Soaring Cost of Gasoline?""A Close Look at Jogging as an Exercise,""A New Engine Can Save Old Betsy," and "If Your Car Rusts It Is Your Fault."
