After-School Study Centers Review. Volume 1, Number 1, Spring 1965.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY.
A description of the organization and activities of several after-school study centers in Brooklyn, New York, funded by ESEA/Title I, is presented. In these centers, seventy thousand students receive remedial help in reading or math, attend open house in the school libraries, or do homework in homework rooms provided to stimulate those who need to improve their work-study skills. Word recognition skills, comprehension skills, and oral reading skills are developed in the reading classes through varied activities. The role of the library includes extending the day school program, offering a place for study, and teaching reference skills in addition to developing interest in reading. This review includes examples of school and class publications, attendance records, and certificates; it describes the materials and methods used for reading, mathematics, and library work; and it suggests additional organizational routines.
