Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority's Reading Improvement Program for Minorities.
Marable, June Morehead
This document discusses the founding and establishment of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority's reading experience pilot project. The efforts of this project were aligned with those of Right to Read and Reading Is Fundamental (RIF). Because of the response from parents and children, plans are being made to increase present operations within the next several years. It is hoped that the pilot project will be expanded to a full-scale national effort involving approximately 500 chapters and, potentially, 70,000 members who could assist in upgrading the reading skills of minority students on a tutorial basis. Suggested activities for other organizations to assist in meeting the educational needs of minority children are listed. The appendix includes AKA guidelines for individual tutors, guidelines for setting up a tutorial program, and a list of resources. (LL)
