This report evaluates a Summer Teacher Training Institute in poverty areas in New York City. The program encompassed two distinct types of training: (1) the Reading Institutes, designed to train reading teachers for the elementary and junior high schools in disadvantaged areas, and (2) the Teacher-Training Institute, set up to train both substitute and appointed teachers in the 19 districts involved in the programs. The evaluation is comprised of an intensive study, conducted while in active operation, of six institutes in four districts, constituting a representative sample of the total group of institutes. The report covers the opinions of the staff, participants and observers about the program, and presents the conclusions and recommendations arrived at. Tabulated results and sample questionnaire forms are appended. (KG)
