The First "R": A Report on the Effectiveness of Reading Instruction in the Eugene Public Schools. Volume One.
Hendrickson, Les; And Others
This report was prepared in response to a request by the Eugene (Oregon) school board for an assessment of reading instruction in the school district. The report first examines how well Eugene students are learning to read. Special areas discussed are the number of students with reading problems, the techniques of collecting and analyzing test data, and the performance of Eugene students on national tests. Next, the instructional characteristics and the strengths and weaknesses of each school within the district are presented. A consideration of the effect of such factors as school size, transfer requests, and the amount of time teachers spend teaching reading outside of the regular reading period is presented. Other factors discussed are the administrative organization of the schools and the cost of providing reading instruction. Appendixes include reports on reading specialists' interviews and media specialists' questionnaires used in the study, a multiple regression study of test score prediction, and a study of organization continuity.
