Reading programs in the Fresno City Unified School District are evaluated as part of PROJECT DESIGN, funded under ESEA Title III. This report includes the following phases: (1) the development of a comprehensive scope and sequence outline of skills, attitudes, and knowledge in the area of reading; (2) an analysis of the schools, the students, and the community to determine the extent of development of these skills; (3) an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of present programs and results; and (4) some suggestions for improvement. The procedure involved studying all pertinent district reports, interviewing key personnel and teachers, and observing schools chosen to represent different socioeconomic levels and different racial distributions.
