The elementary school in Pojoaque, New Mexico, has recently developed a remedial reading program for children in grades 2 to 4. Eighty-three children participated in 1969-70. As the population of the area is 76 percent Spanish-American, 12 percent Indian, 12 percent white, and less than 1 percent black, work in the program focuses on language and communication problems. Children work in remedial reading groups 25 to 30 minutes daily. Activities are divided between individual and small group work. Textbooks and workbooks are used for skill development, and high interest library books, filmstrips, and a tape recorder are used for motivating pupil interest. Pretest and post-test scores on the Gilmore Oral Reading Placement Test, administered primarily for individual diagnosis, indicated that the months of progress in accuracy and comprehension generally exceeded the number of months the children spent in the program. References and a list of materials used are included. (AL)
