Right to Read program; Developmental reading; Reading (Secondary)


Secondary developmental reading programs prior to 1970 were too often characterized by their absence. As the need for such programs began to be gradually recognized, their implementation was marked by experimentation, diversity and honest confusion as to the form such programs should take. As the Right to Read decade approached the half-way mark, Artley emphasized the need to see the "emergence of a consensus as to what a developmental program should do, the dimensions that comprise it, and the organizational structure that will most effectively achieve these objectives." Therefore, it was the intent of this writer to review current literature concerning the developmental reading program in the secondary school. Such literature was examined to determine if any consensus of opinion had emerged as to the need, nature, implementation and feasibility of such a program.
