Elementary School Reading Survey.
Cashman, Mildred Berwick; Berwick, Hildred G.
Results of an elementary reading survey of New Hampshire schools are reported. The survey, part of a 1968 New England Educational Assessment Project, used questionnaires to discover characteristics of reading programs, future needs, and teacher training. Elementary school principals, kindergarten teachers, first-grade teachers, and fourth-grade teachers responded to the questionnaire. The following information was included among the findings. (1) Basic reading programs were used in almost all schools. (2) Children were grouped into three reading groups in almost all classrooms. (3) More than one-half of those children eligible for kindergarten were unable to go due to the paucity of preschool classes. Tables of survey result percentage figures are included. (MD)
