Navy Response to the Need for Literacy Training during Military Service: An Historical Perspective.
Smith, Shirley C.
This study reviews the literature on past, present, and projected literacy requirements for United States Navy enlisted personnel, literacy skills of those entering the Navy, and activities developed to bridge the gap between the two. Through an examination of research reports, historical accounts, and instructional methods and materials, the history of reading instruction in the Navy is traced from the early voluntary efforts of chaplains, to the beginning of job-related literacy needs, through the development of formal curricula for incoming recruits, to current experimental efforts to provide job-related literacy training at various points during enlistment.
