CORRECTIVE READING SERVICES FOR DISADVANTAGED PUPILS IN REGULAR NON-PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
PARKE, MARGARET B.
THE SUCCESS OF A PROGRAM TO PROVIDE CORRECTIVE READING SERVICES TO EDUCATIONALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS IN 130 NEW YORK CITY NONPUBLIC SCHOOLS WAS ASSESSED. THE AIM OF THE PROGRAM WAS TO STIMULATE THE STUDENTS' INTELLECTUAL ACHIEVEMENT AND TO RAISE THEIR EDUCATIONAL ASPIRATION LEVELS. THE EVALUATION OF THE DATA FROM INCOMPLETE TEACHER AND PRINCIPAL QUESTIONNAIRES AND FROM CLASSROOM OBSERVATION WAS SEVERELY LIMITED BECAUSE THE PROGRAM STARTED LATE, RAN ONLY 1 TO 6 WEEKS, AND OFTEN LACKED APPROPRIATE MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT. THE AUTHOR RECOMMENDS THAT MUCH OF THE WORK OF THE DIRECTOR BE DELEGATED TO ADMINISTRATIVE PERSONNEL AND THAT MORE CAREFULLY SELECTED SPECIAL TEACHERS BE GIVEN INTENSIVE TRAINING IN REMEDIAL TECHNIQUES. HOWEVER, IT WAS FOUND THAT THE PROJECT WAS RECEIVED FAVORABLY BY THE STAFF, AND IT IS FELT THAT IT SHOULD BE CONTINUED. INCLUDED IN THE REPORT ARE DETAILED DESCRIPTIONS OF THE PROGRAM INCLUDING MATERIALS, AND TEST DATA, AND DISCUSSIONS OF THE DEGREE TO WHICH THE PROGRAM WAS ACCEPTED BY THE PARENTS, TEACHERS, PRINCIPALS, AND CHILDREN.
