AN EXPERIENCE IN READING FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS.
LAYTON, JAMES R.
A 6-WEEK SUMMER READING PROGRAM SPONSORED WITH THE AID OF FEDERAL FUNDS BY THE APPALACHIAN STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE AND BY THE CHARLOTTE-MECKLENBURG SCHOOL SYSTEM WAS CONDUCTED IN THE SUMMER OF 1966 IN CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA. THE PROGRAM WAS DESIGNED TO HELP 600 ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN WITH READING PROBLEMS AND TO DEVELOP AN INSERVICE PROGRAM FOR TEACHERS WHO WISHED TO IMPROVE THEIR TEACHING TECHNIQUES WHILE EARNING 9 QUARTERS OR 6 SEMESTER HOURS OF GRADUATE CREDIT. EACH STAFF TEACHER WAS ASSIGNED TO HELP SIX INTERNING TEACHERS BY INTRODUCING THEM TO NEW IDEAS IN READING INSTRUCTION. FIFTY STAFF TEACHERS AND THEIR INTERNS WERE INVOLVED IN INSTRUCTION WHILE ANOTHER GROUP OF 50 TEACHERS AND THEIR INTERNS WORKED ON SELF-IMPROVEMENT, GUIDED STUDY, READING RESEARCH, AND PLANNING. PRETESTS, POST-TESTS, AND CONTINUOUS DIAGNOSIS OF THE CHILDREN'S DIFFICULTIES WERE EMPHASIZED. THE BASIC RESPONSIBILITIES OF EACH OF THE THREE SPONSORING AGENCIES, THE DUTIES AND QUALIFICATIONS OF THE STAFF PERSONNEL, AND THE PROGRAM'S DAILY SCHEDULE ARE OUTLINED IN THIS REPORT. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION CONCERNING THE CHARLOTTE-MECKLENBURG SUMMER READING PROGRAM MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE DIRECTOR OF ELEMENTARY LANGUAGE ARTS, CHARLOTTE-MECKLENBURG SCHOOLS, CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (SEATTLE, MAY 4-6, 1967). (NS)
