Summary

Examples of innovations in college and adult reading reading programs in five states are described. At Maricopa Technical College (Arizona) adult students have access to a special reading program emphasizing the language experience approach, capitalizing on students' life experiences and oral language facility. Otero Junior College (Colorado) teaches medical terminology in a Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) program as the students meet the words in other course work. Language Masters help the LPN students master medical terminology through imitation and synthesis. The Informal Vocabulary Inventory used in the Reading Center at Ricks College (Idaho) is a quick and inexpensive diagnostic tool. The student lists the alphabet and then lists, alphabetically, as many words as possible in 10 minutes. Another innovative and inexpensive diagnostic test used at North Idaho College diagnoses knowledge of phonetics, noun and verb usage, and reading comprehension. Multi-track options in a Learning Skills program are offered to any interested student at the University of Utah. The study and reading skills program at the University of Wyoming consists of programed mini-courses for developmental and speed reading, vocabulary building, spelling, listening, and several other topics.
