Summary

This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves 1900 adults of all ages and several ethnic groups and nationalities. The students come from a large inner-city area and have educational levels below high school. The program was begun in 1965. An adult who wishes to enter the program first has an interview with one of the reading counselors, who attempts to identify the person's reason for coming to the program and to translate it into a specific educational goal. Counselors continue to give educational and vocational guidance throughout a student's participation in the program. After the initial counseling, the student meets with the instructor, who starts a folder in which all of the student's work is recorded. The student can then begin to work independently whenever he or she comes to the center, and the instructor can give help when needed. Those who read at a fourth-grade level or lower, work in small groups or individually with more teacher supervision. Instruction takes place in a "learning lab" setting, and a range of materials is available, from reading pacers for the more advanced students to language masters and primer-level books for beginning readers.
