Springfield Public Schools, MA.
Four hundred and two fifth graders, 297 from 34 public schools and 105 from 14 parochial schools in Springfield, Massachusetts, participated in the second year of a reading enrichment project during 1967-68. The major cost categories of the program are reported in this document as well as the three major objectives. The overall objective is defined as an effort to create a situation in which the children could think and talk creatively about their reading experiences. Also included are lists of the books used, the guidelines for selecting children and organizing groups, and suggestions for activities. The children, parents, principals, liaison people, and teacher-leaders involved in the project were questioned for their responses to the program, and the results are presented. The enthusiastic responses as to the success of the program led to several general conclusions which are included. (NH)
