10 Part V ITuesday, October 4, 1983 Eos Anfleles States THUNDER ON THE RIGHT, LEFT 'THE DAY AFTER' CREATING A STIR By TOM SHALES, The Washington Post WASHINGTON There are weeks to go until "The Day After," but already the ABC movie about a nuclear attack on the United States is setting off explosions. It could well become the most politicized entertainment program ever seen on television. And it reportedly has the network that will show it shivering with fear. The problem is not the film itself although it is said to be an uncompromisingly grim dramatization of the aftermath of an atomic explosion in the Midwest. What worries ABC is that both anti- and pro-nuclear groups are trying to use the film for their own ends. Josh Baran, a national media coordinator for the anti-nuclear forces, says from Berkeley, Calif., that there will be "literally tens of thousands" of organized-group viewings of the film by anti -nuke organizations when ABC shows it the night of Nov. 20. That is, IF the network shows it the night of Nov. 20. Please see'THE DAY.' Paae 12 Teachers give us Ms in reading. Two thirds of our students come from teacher and parent referrals. That's because our reading programs work. Most students progress more than 2 months for every month of Reading Game instruction, usually even more in confidence and grades. Unfortunately people think reading is one skiif. It isn't. We've identified 25 skills in four areas phonics, vocabulary, comprehension and reading speed. Our 2Yz hours of diagnostic testing pinpoints which skills a student has mastered and lets us write a reading prescription that focuses on the weaknesses. We have several programs to offer: Remedial Reading for students who The Reading uame are behind their classmates. Reading Enrichment, for college-bound students who want to improve their vocabulary, comprehension, critical thinking and research techniques. SAT Preparation, a 6-week course for high schoolers. speed Reading, an a-week course for teens and adults that increases their study, pleasure and rapid read ing rates. The first step is diagnostic testing. Call us, and we'll set up an appointment. CI 6 J J ve got reading down to a science.
