Strategies for Improving Adult Reading Performance.
Marion City Board of Education, OH.
This project report explores the potential of using the strategies and methods of the Reading Recovery Program to teach adult nonreaders. The following assessment procedures assist the tutor in determining the student's reading level: letter identification, reading vocabulary, concepts about print, writing vocabulary, dictation, and text reading. The reading and writing activities presented in this booklet emphasize reading for meaning through text reading and learning strategies that incorporate all three cuing systems. Writing activities include learning letters, sentence writing, additional sentence writing, and spelling words. The following reading activities are included: new readings; analyze student's reading; questioning strategies--meaning substitution, visual error, grammatical or structural error, and omissions and insertions; reread for fluency; and model good reading behaviors. Additional activities include sight words and varied activities. Four handouts are provided. (NLA)
