College Reading Programs: Some Perennial Questions.
Intended for instructors and administrators setting up a college reading and study skills program, this paper presents eight issues that should be carefully considered when developing a program structure that will suit the needs and framework of each institution. Discussions, resolutions, and rationale are provided for the following issues: (1) selecting students for the reading program; (2) whether the program should be voluntary, mandatory, or advised; (3) whether the program should generate academic credit; (4) an appropriate grading system; (5) a method for evaluating student performance in the program; (6) the major objectives of the reading program; (7) the components of the reading program; and (8) improving existing programs.
