LUMLEY, KATHRYN WENTZEL
TITLE 1 FUNDS SUPPORT MANY READING PROJECTS IN THE SCHOOLS OF WASHINGTON, D. C. TWO OF THESE ARE THE MOBILE READING UNITS AND A TRAVELING BOOKSTORE. THE SELF-CONTAINED MOBILE READING UNITS ARE EQUIPPED TO PROVIDE IMPROVED DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES TO STUDENTS. THE TRAVELING PAPERBACK-BOOKSTORE OFFERS A WIDE SELECTION OF BOOKS WITH FREEDOM OF CHOICE FOR RELUCTANT READERS AS PART OF THE READING INCENTIVE SEMINARS ORGANIZED BY THE SECONDARY EDUCATION DEPARTMENT. BOTH UNITS AIM TO ENCOURAGE RELUCTANT AND RETARDED READERS. OTHER PROJECTS FINANCED BY TITLE 1 FUNDS IN WASHINGTON, D. C., ARE THE FOLLOWING--(1) THE TEACHER AIDE PROGRAM WHICH RELIEVES TEACHERS OF NON-TEACHING DUTIES SO THEY CAN DEVOTE MORE TIME TO PROFESSIONAL READING INSTRUCTION, (2) THE READING RESOURCE TEACHER PROGRAM WHICH ENABLES SUCCESSFUL READING TEACHERS TO BE THE READING RESOURCE TEACHERS FOR THEIR SCHOOLS THROUGH AN INTENSIVE TRAINING COURSE, (3) SPECIAL 6-WEEK SUMMER READING PROGRAMS FOR RETARDED READERS.
