Teaching adults to read by Wayne Otto( Book )

3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide presents a variety of materials, methods, and ideas for teaching functionally illiterate adults (with less than grade 4 reading ability). Emphasis is placed on helping adults to read independently and to attain a level of skill sufficient for everyday reading tasks. The first three chapters deal with the nature of the problem of illiteracy and marginal illiteracy, the economic, domestic, social, and psychological problems that arise when adults return to school, and general characteristics of adult learners. Chapter 4 is largely devoted to 24 basic reading systems accompanied by detailed check lists, with selected supplementary materials also discussed. The final chapter reviews the sequential development of reading skills, reading inventories and standardized tests, the motivating of students, classroom management, lesson planning, and other facets of program implementation. (The document includes chapter references, tables, addresses of publishers, and a general index.) This document is available from the houghton mifflin company, boston, mass. (Ly)

The emphasis is not on the specifics of instruction but on providing a framework within which efficient reading instruction can be effected. Part 2 discusses aspects of a school program that need consideration if improved reading instruction is to result. Scheduling, materials, evaluation, public relations, and roles of specialized personnel are discussed.

Transfer effects of training intermediate grade pupils to adjust reading speed to reading purpose by Theodore L Harris( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigation was conducted to determine whether reading rate variability developed with short, tightly-constructed training materials would transfer to longer, more school-like passages immediately after training and one month later. The project was an extension of the usoe project 1755, "the experimental development of variability in rate of reading in the intermediate grades." The subjects were 72 children in madison, wisconsin--12 girls and 12 boys in each of grades four, five, and six--with reading scores between the 40th and 90th percentiles on the sequential tests of educational progress, the california achievement test, and the iowa reading test. During the orientation and training periods, group 1 worked with materials from which the main idea was deleted. Both groups worked with passages of identical length and essentially the same subject matter. Neither training method, sex, nor grade was significantly related to reading rate variability as defined and measured. However, data indicated that any reading rate variability existing after training was transferred and that flexibility could be taught in fourth grade. Samples of training materials, examiners' directions, orientation materials, tables figures, and references are included. Training procedures and materials are described. (Rh)

Materials for teaching adults to read by Wayne Otto( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An extensive survey and review of the materials available for teaching illiterate adults to read was conducted by questioning publishers about the literature they published for the adult basic literacy market. Based on the publishers' replies, the following six annotated lists of adult reading materials were compiled and are presented--basic reading programs for adults, supplementary skill builders, supplementary easy reading materials, U.S. government printing office publications, materials for teaching reading to foreign born adults, and a selected list of publications useful to literacy instructors. A checklist accompanies each program to aid in its evaluation. Publishers' addresses are given. References are included. (Rh)
