Development and Evaluation of a Remedial Reading Workbook for Navy Training. Final Report.
Kincaid, J. Peter; Curry, Thomas F., Jr.
In response to the assessed need for improving the basic academic skills of United States Navy personnel, a project was undertaken to develop a relevant remedial reading workbook for Navy recruit training commands (RTCs). The workbook was designed to augment existing commercial nonmilitary oriented remedial reading materials that were being used in Navy Academic Remedial Training (ART). The results of a two-month field test of the workbook at the Orlando, Florida, RTC/ART division were positive, indicating that it was a useful tool and that students were interested in and motivated by the Navy-related materials.
