Two years ago a group of reading teachers at the college level met for the purpose of discussing current problems in helping college students read better. As a result of this meeting, the Michigan College Reading Association was established. The basic purpose of the organization is to serve as a channel of communication between people in the field so that members can get acquainted, discuss ongoing programs, exchange ideas and information, and investigate issues of mutual concern. Through this association members hope to encourage reading programs at the college level as well as to improve their own programs and teaching skills.
