A Modular Approach to Reading Improvement at the College Level.
Human Conservation Associates, Inc., Tallahassee.
This handbook describes a college level self-pacing mastery learning corrective and developmental reading program in the areas of study skills, vocabulary, comprehension, reading in the content areas, critical reading, and rate flexibility. Each learning module contains a program of learning experiences, performance competencies, a topic, a rationale, and an objective. Six additional elements contained in each module are: preassessment, a list of the competencies, suggested learning experiences, criterion behaviors, postassessment, and a bibliography of sources used in the module. Appendixes include an individual student form, a class record, and a student feedback form for assessing the modular delivery system; group reading inventories, for English and social studies; and a sample class profile/summary chart for the group reading inventories.
