Teaching Reading at the Work Site.
Ediger, Marlow
Inadequate self-concepts develop due to being a poor and insecure reader. Any company invests time and money wisely if it provides individuals opportunities to develop needed reading skills at the workplace. There are selected prerequisites for reading instructors to stress when teaching at the workplace: (1) the instructor needs to have basic information from each candidate; and (2) the reading level of the candidate needs to be determined, either by using a standardized test or by having the candidate/worker read aloud. Reading achievement of the learner depends upon his or her proficiency in vocabulary development. The worker needs to communicate orally with others at the workplace and needs a rich speaking vocabulary in addition to reading skills. The reading teacher needs to show a caring attitude toward the learner and encourage as well as reward improved reading performance. Each person needs to become increasingly proficient in reading to optimize his or her opportunities at the workplace. (NKA)
