The curriculum in this after school program for low income Negro and Puerto Rican elementary school (grades 2-6) consisted primarily of remedial reading and arithmetic, library training, homework assistance, and a "Special Potential Development Service" providing music, art, and health education. The volunteer students were accepted because they were retarded 1 year or more in reading or arithmetic. An evaluation of the 1964-65 program showed that a sample of fourth-grade students enrolled in the reading program for 3 to 6 hours a week had made significantly greater gains in reading age than a control group from the same schools. The greater the attendance, the greater the gains were. In the 1966-67 program the students in the program showed significant gains over expected performance in reading at each grade level. A description of the program's activities includes information on staff, teaching techniques (particularly reading), instructional materials, audiovisual aids, and costs. (EF)
