Coordination of Chapter 1 and Regular Programs.

This resource guide is to be used in coordination with a 15-minute video program and contains related activities designed to assist Chapter 1 programs in coordinating instructional services to students so that all Chapter 1 students will be able to achieve success in the program. The emphasis on coordinated instruction is a result of the new Chapter 1 law, which states for the first time that success in the regular program is a major goal. Prior to the new law of 1988, many Chapter 1 programs focused on the traditional goals of Title 1/Chapter 1--to help students master basic skills and reach grade level. It was believed that if students performed poorly in regular classrooms, they needed a different curriculum. Under the new regulations, all Chapter 1 programs ar required to provide services that will directly help students succeed in the regular classroom. This resource guide and video focus on reading because most Chapter 1 programs include reading instruction. Handouts are provided that guide discussion on the following topics: (1) defining success in the regular program; (2) advantages and disadvantages of pullout and in-class settings; (3) focusing on a common curriculum; (4) advantages and disadvantages of readiness, reinforcement, and other approaches; and (5) communication between Chapter 1 and classroom staff.
