BOOKS, READ THEM AND KEEP THEM.
COLLINS, ROBERT H.
AS PART OF THE "ROOMS OF 20" PROJECT IN THE ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, PUBLIC SCHOOLS, A BOOK-OWNERSHIP PROGRAM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED TO MOTIVATE DISADVANTAGED PUPILS TO READ AND LEARN. CHILDREN IN THIS PROGRAM ARE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO "EARN" BOOKS BY SHOWING THE TEACHER THAT THEY OWN A PUBLIC LIBRARY CARD OR BY HAVING READ TWO BOOKS FROM THE PUBLIC OR CLASSROOM LIBRARY. THE PROGRAM, FINANCED UNDER TITLE I OF THE 1965 ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT, HAS BEEN CONDUCTED IN 76 REGULAR CLASSES AND IN A NUMBER OF SATURDAY AND SUMMER SCHOOL CLASSES. HOWEVER A PROBLEM IS ANTICIPATED IN ACQUIRING FUNDS TO CONTINUE THE PROGRAM BEYOND THE FIRST SEMESTER OF THE 1967 SCHOOL YEAR. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN"SOUTHERN EDUCATION REPORT," VOLUME 3, NUMBER 5, DECEMBER 1967. (LB)
