Research-based Adult Reading Instruction

Research-based Adult Reading Instruction This guide provides comprehensive instructions for facilitating a ten-hour study circle that explores differing theories of the reading process, the four major components of reading and the implications for teaching, the development of learners' reading profiles, and the Equipped for the Future framework. The guide is based on a review of adult reading research conducted by the Reading Research Working Group and published in a report by John Kruidenier, Research-Based Principles for Adult Education Reading Instruction. It is also supplemented by other readings from a variety of sources. Summaries of research on reading and definitions of key terms and acronyms are included. This guide provides all the necessary materials and clear instructions to plan and facilitate a three-session study circle with an option for a fourth. Each session lasts three-and-a-half hours.
