Boyles, Marion P.
The Communications Skills Laboratory Program, an ESEA/Title I project in the Atlanta, Georgia, public schools, presented a language skills course for underachieving eighth-grade pupils. Pupils had reading achievement scores below sixth-grade level, had reading potential scores above this level, and had a 70 IQ or better. Small group or individual instruction stressed grammar through oral language pattern drills, listening activities, writing activities, and basic reading skills practice. Data for six schools are reported separately, comparing pretests and post-tests scores for significant differences. No two participating schools administered the same number or kind of tests. In all except one of the schools significant improvement in total reading was noted. In all three schools measuring language usage there was significant improvement. Tables are included. (CM)
