Reading Comprehension CCA Basic Skills Curriculum. Instructor's Guide.
Illinois Univ., Urbana. Computer-Based Education Research Lab.
Designed and programmed by the staff of the Courseware and Curriculum Applications (CCA) Group (a unit of the Computer-Based Education Research Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), this instructor's guide describes a computer-based reading comprehension curriculum designed for adults and adolescents who read at the intermediate fourth through eighth grade level. The guide, divided into eight units, consists of three strands of lessons: "Reading Comprehension" (20 lessons organized into skill-learning tracks, formats, and tasks, which focus on skills needed in reading for information and facts), "Pacer Passages" (13 lessons containing from two to five reading passages) and "Finding the Main Idea" (20 lessons). Each of the lessons in the guide gives the lesson's file name, authors, and author affiliation; describes lesson objectives, the lesson, and interactions; and notes suggested supplemental offline materials (SRA Reading Lab IIIa), the intended audience, completion time, and associated lessons. An appendix lists files. (SR)
