Ireland, Vera M.; Lauchner, Jan
The goal for the instructional program at Luckie Street Elementary School was to improve instruction in all subject areas at all grade levels. However, reading was identified as the subject area which would be emphasized in grades one through seven, with special help for grades one through three, through the Comprehensive Instructional Program. The special or supplementary programs were aimed at enriching and/or strengthening the regular instructional program. The goals or objectives of some of the programs are as follows: (I) Reading programs: the overall objective was that pupils gain at the rate of one grade level per year; (II) Volunteers for Reading: the goal was to assist teachers with the instruction of reading; (III) Tech Brother Programs: the goal of this program, involving 24 Georgia Tech Students working with 24 pupils on a one-to-one basis, was to provide the pupil with a model male image while engaging in remedial tutorial and enrichment activities; and, (IV) Program for Education and Career Exploration: the overall goal was to provide pupils with experiences and information that will serve to help them formulate a basis upon which appropriate educational and occupational choices can be made at future major decision points.
