Reading Instruction for the Adult Illiterate.
Jones, Edward V.
Intended for current or prospective teachers of illiterate adults, this book highlights both some motivational and environmental factors that may particularly affect the classroom performance of adult remedial readers and the areas where the backgrounds, experiences, and expectations of teachers and learners are apt to differ. Following an introduction, chapters in the first section of the book provide a profile of the adult illiterate, discussing the scope of illiteracy and the background and prior learning of adult illiterates. The chapters in the second part of the book provide a program of adult reading instruction, discussing such factors as the reading process, word identification, reading diagnosis and assessment, and writing in support of reading.
