Summary

The teaching of reading is an important aspect of the total Adult Basic Education (ABE) program. The basic problem was: How is the teaching of reading in Nebraska being carried out? In trying to answer this question the document lays the groundwork by opening with a review of related literature and then discusses in detail the type of data collection used in the survey. Two variables remained constant: the size of the ABE programs and the students enrolled (one group mainly English speaking and a second group who used English as a second language). The data gathered is presented in 28 tables and discussed together with the general findings on reading material used, techniques and methods, medium and equipment, measurement and evaluation of reading progress, comprehension, and retention. The author concludes that previous 1970-71 findings have been replicated, that a clearinghouse on information is needed, and that there is congruency in procedures and materials used in regard to the size and population of the program. Included are three appendixes (a research questionnaire, a bibliography, and a selected source list). (BP)
