An Evaluation of the Intermediate Language Arts Program at Nootka Elementary School, for the 1970-71 School Year.
The main objective of this program was to increase pupil achievement, library use, and interest in all areas of language arts, with instructional emphasis placed on individual attention and small group work. The program appears to have had some measure of success in achieving its objectives, and the teachers, librarian, observer and principal were generally positive about the program. Although reading achievement and attitude were good for the most part, there were high percentages of poor readers and pupils with poor attitudes towards reading. Further investigation is recommended. The results of the reading tests, a breakdown of library activities by grade and number of students participating, and teacher response to the program are included. (DLG)
