An Evaluation of the Corrective Reading Services for Disadvantaged Pupils in Non-Public Schools.
New York Univ., NY. Center for Field Research and School Services.
In order to alleviate the problems with reading which many children in non-public schools located in impacted poverty neighborhoods have, corrective reading services for these children have been instituted by the New York City Board of Education under ESEA Title I. As of August 1970, approximately 158 non-public schools in disadvantaged areas of New York City are receiving corrective reading services. This program is being offered at both the elementary and secondary levels. The project is in its fourth full year of operation. This final report is restricted to the operations of the program during the 1969-1970 school year. It includes a description of the project's implementation, an evaulation of the program by the professional staff, the parents, and the pupils who participated in the programs, and an overall assessment of the project's effectiveness. The major objectives of the program were: (1) to increase proficiency in reading; (2) to increase general achievement and stimulate motivation for school work by improving reading skills; (3) to make the corrective reading work more effective by encouraging reinforcement of reading work in the home classroom; and, (4) to encourage parents to actively participate in the pupils' reading program. Evaulation data was collected from a stratified sample of 30 schools, proportionally representing each type of school receiving program services. (Author/JM)
