Futureprint. California Demonstration Program in Reading: De Anza Junior High School. Eleventh Annual Report.
Chick, Lila; And Others
The De Anza Reading Center is a California Demonstration Program for intensive instruction in reading at the junior high school level that was originally modeled after the successful program developed at Santa Barbara Junior High School. Operating since January of 1973, each project group receives instruction in the Reading Center for two years--as seventh and eighth graders. All students at the project grade level participate in heterogeneous classes regardless of their reading levels and abilities. The objective is to help every student become a better reader and a more responsible person by increasing the reading achievement and improving the self concept of each student. As outlined in the proposal, the project was to include 12 major components and 8 specific objectives. The evaluation of these twenty items is contained within this report. The appendices include a parent questionnaire with parental comments and suggestions, parental interviews and comments, and student interviews and comments. (PN)
