Staff After-Effects of Participation in a Reading Research Project: A Follow-Up Study of the Craft Project.
Morrison, Coleman; And Others
Characteristics of a reading program sustained 3 years following the conclusion of the original research study were examined to see what methods and materials had been retained in participating schools. These schools were those which had taken part in the CRAFT program in 12 predominantly Negro New York City schools. Results of an inventory of teacher attitudes were compiled and examined for this study. The report includes information on individual teacher reactions, administrative attitudes, and present utilization of experimental methods and approaches. It was found that, after trying several experimental methods, teachers returned to a basal reader approach, incorporating ideas from the experimental methods. Administrators, after trying heterogeneous grouping, returned to homogeneous grouping with one exception. References and data tables are included. (MD)
