A Non-Public School Reading Program.
Cutler, Ethel B.
Disadvantaged children with reading difficulties in non-public New York City schools have been admitted to corrective reading programs administered by the New York City Board of Education since such programs were begun in 1965 with ESEA/Title I funds. In 1968-69, 157 schools and a total of 13,258 children were served in groups of 5 to 10. Teachers, 78 part-time and 19 full-time, were given intensive training before beginning the program and were given assistance in the form of visits from field supervisors and of consultations with reading teachers and specialists. An inservice program provided continuing instruction. Materials furnished through the project included commercial, teacher-made, and project-produced materials. Classroom furniture and equipment, text materials, and practice materials were distributed to all participating classrooms. Parents were involved in project activity through individual and group conferences and through workshops. References are included. (MD)
