All College Students Benefit from Reading Instruction.
Kettlewell, Gail B.
Tidewater Community College has developed a reading program which responds to the various needs and skills of all students at a school with an inclusive admissions policy. The Tidewater model defines six categories of student reading ability: remedial (below tenth grade level), adapted (below tenth who work to capacity but are slow learners), corrective (below tenth but done in regular classroom), accelerated (those on any level who learn faster), developmental (on tenth grade level and above), and consulting service (aid to all divisions on campus). Each category may include one or more type of instruction (reading improvement, advanced reading, college reading, or departmental assistance). This model not only provides for all students but also aids the staff in determining methods and materials for reading instruction. (TJ)
