IN-CLASS GROUPING TO CARE FOR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS.
HUMPHREY, JACK W.
AN IN-CLASS GROUPING PLAN IS PRESENTED FOR AIDING STUDENTS ENTERING HIGH SCHOOL WITH INSTRUCTIONAL READING LEVELS AS LOW AS GRADES TWO AND THREE. THESE PUPILS WERE ASSIGNED TO A CLASS CALLED READING 1 AND WERE TO CONTINUE TO READING 2, 3, OR 4 FOR A TOTAL OF FOUR SEMESTERS OR UNTIL THEY HAD REACHED A SEVENTH-GRADE INSTRUCTIONAL LEVEL. MOST OF THE TEACHERS HAD A READING SPECIALIST LICENSE, AND MOST CLASSES WERE TAUGHT IN A SPECIALLY EQUIPPED DEVELOPMENTAL READING ROOM. ON THE BASIS OF TEST SCORES ACHIEVED ON THE GATES READING SURVEY, THE LORGE-THORNDIKE NON-VERBAL INTELLIGENCE TEST, THE STANFORD-BINET INTELLIGENCE TEST, THE BOTEL READING INVENTORY, AND ON THE PEABODY PICTURE VOCABULARY TEST AS NEEDED, CLASSES WERE DIVIDED INTO THREE GROUPS. FOR EXAMPLE, IN A READING 1 CLASS OF 15 STUDENTS, GROUP 1 HAD SIX PUPILS WITH A FIFTH-GRADE INSTRUCTIONAL LEVEL, GROUP 2 HAD SIX PUPILS AT THE FOURTH-GRADE LEVEL, AND GROUP 3 HAD THREE PUPILS AT THE SECOND- OR THIRD-GRADE LEVEL. DURING THE READING PERIOD, ONE OF THE GROUPS WAS GIVEN INSTRUCTION WHILE THE OTHERS WORKED ON A BASIC ASSIGNMENT. A VARIETY OF MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES SUSTAINED INTEREST. A WEEK'S PROGRAM IN READING 1 IS DESCRIBED. THE MATERIALS USED IN THE PLAN ARE LISTED IN THE BIBLIOGRAPHY. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (SEATTLE, MAY 4-6, 1967). (RH)
