Teaching Reading to the Upward Bound Student.
Palmer, Princess A.
Three steps in teaching reading to Upward Bound students are considered in this paper: individualized needs assessment, determination of students' attitudes toward reading, and the actual instruction. In discussing the diagnosis of students' individual needs, the paper describes the Nelson Reading Test and additional diagnostic tests that may be used. It then points to the importance of determining students' attitudes toward reading and discusses the Estes Attitude Scale, noting results obtained when it was administered to Upward Bound students at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. Finally, the paper observes that the actual instruction of reading may be conducted in a number of ways and that the selection of high-interest materials is very important to instruction. An appendix discusses various instructional materials and assesses their appeal and success with Upward Bound students. (Author/GT)
