Read, Write, and Spell Every Day: The Mt. Tabor Title I Reading and Writing Project.
Dunkeld, Colin; Engle, Pat
This document describes in depth a reading and writing project implemented at the sixth, seventh, and eighth grade levels at a public school in Portland, Oregon. The objectives of the Title I project--to improve students' reading and writing skills and to evaluate that improvement--are outlined, and each component of the program is described in detail. The series of holistic activities in the program includes the use of diaries, independent individualized reading, reading conferences, language lessons, proofreading and rewriting, and listening comprehension. Tests used to evaluate students' progress and their results are discussed for each project objective. The project results are then summarized, and 12 recommendations are given for projects similar to this one based on observations. (HTH)
