The Development of Graduate Level Emphases for Adult Reading-Literacy Instruction and Postsecondary Reading-Learning Instruction: A Preliminary Report to the Faculty in Reading at Northern Illinois University.
Stahl, Norman A.
Intended primarily to serve as a catalyst for further discussion, this report presents recommendations for the development of graduate level emphases in adult reading/literacy and postsecondary reading/learning (initially at the doctoral level and later at the master's level) that function within the mission of the graduate program offered by the Faculty in Reading of the Curriculum and Instruction Department at Northern Illinois University. The report considers the basic goals of the program and then presents recommendations for designing a prototypical plan of study for both proposed emphases. The report discusses (1) the required core courses; (2) the recommended courses offered by the Faculty in Reading; (3) the within-field electives that do not directly apply to the emphasis; (4) the cognate areas of study; and (5) the general interdisciplinary electives. A number of basic administrative issues (such as recruitment of students, delivery systems, instructional sites, implementation timetable, requirements for staffing, and teaching assistantship) are discussed in the report. The report concludes with a restatement of questions raised in the report but left for discussion. (RS)
