Forum for Reading: The Journal for Two-Year College Reading Teachers. Volume 10, No. 2.
Pinette, Clayton, Ed.
Six articles are presented in this special interest journal focusing on two-year college reading instruction. Mindy Brooks discusses teaching and learning styles in terms of individual approaches to gathering and evaluating data. W. E. Jackson and Twalah Jackson discuss changes in the educational environment as related to the concept of "getting back to basics." In another article, Kathy Carpenter describes a successful vocabulary expansion program using word games. Barbara Crist and William Anderson present a study which demonstrates that when dealing with students with lower than average verbal skills, the vocabulary subscore of the SAT is more predictive of grade point average than the comprehension subscore for first semester freshmen. Glenda Hammond and Dianne McKay describe a skills instruction component of a tutor training program and discuss a management approach which the tutor can employ to increase the value of the tutoring session. In a final paper, Edward J. Dwyer reviews a system to improve reading comprehension through prereading of questions. (MB)
