1969-70 Language Development; Intermediate and Secondary. Final Report.
Rodosky, Robert J.
The Intermediate and Secondary Language Development Component, funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, has the following objectives: (1) to help the underachieving pupil, grades four to 12, improve his reading achievement; (2) to help the intermediate level (grades four to six) underachieving pupil to become more successful in his regular reading class work; and, (3) to help the intermediate level underachieving pupil develop more positive motivations toward reading. Thirty public schools of the Columbus Public School District and four Diocesan schools were served by this component. The curriculum included numerous activities under the categores of motivation, motor activities, visual discrimination, auditory perception, listening, sight vocabulary, word analysis, comprehension, phonics, and study skills. There was consultation with classroom teachers about individual pupils. Pupil selection was made on the basis of a comparison of obtained versus expected reading scores on the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test--for fourth graders, or the Nelson Reading Test, for fifth or sixth graders. The 35 pupils who demonstrated the largest discrepancy and who were also below age level were selected for further diagnosis and instruction. (Author/JM)
