Community Living Skills Guides: Reading II.
Kreps, Alice Roelofs
One of twenty course guides in the Community Living Skills Guide for the College for Living series, this guide provides guidelines and workbook activities for the course Reading II. The series of courses for developmentally disabled adults is intended to supplement residential programs and to aid in orienting institutionalized persons to eventual integration into the community. Goals for the course include for the student to read more effectively and fluently, to understand and enjoy reading, and to demonstrate abilities in practical, survival reading. Following an assessment instrument (The Graded Word List: Quick Gauge of Reading Ability), objectives and activities are given for twelve "steps" which follow this outline: literal meaning of words, sentences, short articles, finding the main ideas; details; following instructions; relationships-comparisons; predicting outcomes/references; use of figurative language; conclusions; cause-effect; classification; appreciation skills; and listening skills. Additional activities for this course and Reading I (CE 024 485) are suggested. Other guides in the series and related documents (a volunteer training workshop packet and curriculum guide for fourteen courses) are available separately. (See note.) (YLB)
